Although not necessarily in an interesting sense.

Doing a Github fork is obviously just a development convenience -
there is still an upstream and a desire to push things upstream.

Re-implementations of Lua exist - they remain Lua as long as they
preserve syntax and semantics.

It would be wildly exciting (in a bad way) if one of those independent
projects starting to claim that they were the new Lua, and try
mobilize community around that.
