On the subject of LuaRocks, I miss something like python's virtualenv
[1] + virtualenvwrapper [2]. While LuaRocks does have support for
multiple trees (which is great!), I find it to be a PITA to manage
different trees accross different projects, especially when also
dealing with different interpreters (e.g. 5.1 vs 5.2 vs LuaJIT2). It
would be great to have a cross-platform (if possible) set of scripts
that help dealing with path, interpreter and luarocks trees.

I'm not sure if it's technically challenging enough for GSoC, though.
