There's not enough there for a student to do. I just spent about two
hours and got it to build and work with 5.2. It will take another few
hours to sync back the changes so wxLua will work with 5.1 and 5.2.

wxLua really just needs people to do a lot of boring tasks, RPM spec,
debian package, and the always tedious maintenance of the bindings. I
feel it would be very unkind to saddle a young inspired student with
these mundane tasks, though maybe I'm wrong, it would teach patience.
Other ideas are welcome though.
