Just repeating what the Lua team has said many times: this

I knew the answer. Maybe this is beaten to death already. Daurnimator's luatz is a nice abstraction and has a support for different time providing back ends (like ljsyscall and socket), but this seems so unnecessary, :-/. Or maybe PUC Lua could distribute some _official_ batteries that do not have that strict requirements as core lib. Still has to work on say all main platforms like Linux, BSDs, Windows, OSX, Android, IOS, Solaris out of the box and patches for others welcomed.
