I disagree, in most cases it is a technical concern. Lua is continually
being improved. If you're using a distant fork that is not tracking those
improvements, then you'll either miss out on the advances or have to apply
substantial effort to track them yourself. That's why I encourage localized
patches that change as little code as possible.
