Please excuse a discreet cough from a pedantic user of a minority platform.
I do not think you meant "all", Dirk; you meant "most". My platform will
never be able to use the module libraries you mention. It does not even
support dynamic linking. One of the key reasons why people like me adore Lua
is that when http://www.lua.org/about.html says "Lua is distributed in a
small package and builds out-of-the-box in all platforms that have an
ANSI/ISO C compiler" the word "all" is being used correctly.
