This is great news, Peter: this is something we've dreamed about for a
while now, a good solid cross-platform distribution for Lua+Batteries.
What I can directly contribute is debugger support; there's both
scite-debug (which works wherever SciTE works) and lua-gdb, which
is a front-end that does both Lua and C (i.e. you can skip from Lua
into a C extension's source) that fakes gdb well enough for Emacs. 
These guys were on my to-do list and I will endeavour to put them into
the LD repo.
 Including SciTE would not be necessary, since the installation
would hook into a standard SciTE installation via its user property
 Alas, other programs like DD are more picky and want the Real Thing.
