  I think it was first brought up in 2014 on this list:

but I seem to recall it coming up a few times, with even Roberto mentioning
it could be possible to include with Lua, or have it replace the current Lua

  I use LPeg a lot, but I don't have a strong opinion on including it with
the stock Lua distribution.  It would be nice, but I know where to find it.
It would likely remain its own module (much like io or os is in the current
Lua distribution).
