LuaRocks is a nice package manager with one serious deficiency -- it
cannot update itself.
Would it be possible to create a luarock for LuaRocks itself?
Right now in order to update LuaRocks one first has to manually delete
the existing installation, then build/install a new version.

Is there a fundamental reason why it is difficult/impossible to make it happen?
