Thanks, Mike; these things do matter, and 'MIT' is easier to type.

Latest push of luabuild provides an option to build against linenoise
(which is BSD)

$ lua lake LINENOISE=1

ditto for a static build

$ lua lake LINENOISE=1 STATIC=1

(In both cases linenoise is linked statically)

Also includes Rob Hoelz's lua-linenoise binding, and I've done an
example.lua [1] file in lieu of any actual documentation.

There was a discussion about using linenoise in Lua [2]; the feeling
was that it was underpowered for some more interesting uses like
intelligent completion. However, this situation has changed materially
since then, since there is now adequate completion support, which is
exposed by lua-linenoise.  Doing a little Lua interpreter with
context-sensitive completion would not be difficult, especially if we
start with a more fully-featured version like ilua.
