Well, precisely. It's mostly a Linux thing and I suspect the Lua team
leaves such things to the downstream maintainers.

As Enrico says, it would be nice if Lua executables had standard names
but again, this is policy.  Personally I don't mind finding an
executable called 'lua' and doing capability tests in programs.
