We've had efforts along those lines, Steve Donovan being the person
most strongly associated with building standard toolboxes (Penlight,
Microlight) and standard batteries-included parcels (LuaDist), but
these people tend to like programming and to hate acting as marketing

Personally I don't think Lua needs anybody to market it.
