Agreed, nice one!

This is definitely a good idea, I think it will certainly go a long
way in helping at least me get deeper into lua use! :-P

Proper constructive criticism is always good, though I think some sort

There are other metrics too such as download count which can help (a
little) in judging the usefulness/popularity of a package.
