Argh... my bad. Looks like the "luars232" has been renamed to "librs232" and it does exist already. Also, I saw a closed issue about archiving last version of SciTE. I do not use the Windows-only libraries (i.e. the non-portable ones), so for me, LuaDist is pretty much a replacement for LfW !  Thanks again, @Paul and @Steve. Downloading it right now.

Thanks @Paul and @Steve. LuaDist batteries seem to lack at one library I needed -- "luars232" (that LfW does have - but not the latest).
Have opened a new issue. Hopefully the maintainers (Peter?) would include it in the next release. Now only if the LuaIDE based on SciTE from LfW could be salvaged !

Ryan and Andrew think this is the way to go; so the LuaDist
'batteries' zip is actually the new LfW.  The big advantage is that
Peter Drahos (from LuaDist) can rebuild all the packages, whereas with
the old LfW there was no common collected source base.  Much easier to
keep up to date!
