FWIW, the last version also bundles luasocket, luasec, luafilesystem,
and lpeg binaries for Lua 5.1-5.3 on all supported platforms
(Windows/Linux/MacOS). For those users who need more, there is
integration with LuaDist that will get binaries (or compile from
sources if needed) ; there is no direct integration with luarocks,
but any usual path mechanisms that Lua uses (whether with
package.c/path or LUA_C/PATH) should work.
