Description: PUC-Lua aims to provide standard Lua in binary form to
Windows users for whome the phrase "What's a compiler?" is not a joke.

What's not done:

- Finding where to dovetail with LuaUsers wiki, and other Windows resources
- Add support for old school 2.4 LuaInterface
- Convert Tuxen and LuaInterface to 5.x

If you'd like to support the effort, please download the installer and
test it and report all issues on Github. I shall be pining for more
help with the Tuxen scripting engine soon.

*Fyi my Visual Studio Professional trial license is running out
tomorrow, I will not be able to respond to issues for a few weeks
until I get that sorted. (Welcome to Windows!)
