Well yes, having multiple lua versions in different terminal sessions will be a very good idea in my opinion.

And thanks for pointing out that I missed setting some environment variables. Will fix it soon!

PS: I'm still confused on what to name it :P

in your place, i'd avoid any relation with 'nvm' like that plague


Aw come on, it's not that bad is it?

(disclaimer, it's gotten a lot of new features added since I transferred maintenance to @ljharb)

One interesting point related to nvm is that I worked very initially to make it possible to have multiple versions active on a single machine at once. 
In other words, it didn't move symlinks or anything global, only affected environment variables for the current terminal session.  I think this is possible with lua and did something similar with my home-grown lua environment for travis

Also regarding the name, what about "moon phase"/"fase da lua".  Just "phase" or "fase" might be unique enough.
