I would also throw my support behind this idea. I know that I personally
would appreciate such a library for everyday use. And while I may not be a
new user, I certainly would appreciate the chance to see some well-written
Lua code to increase my understanding of the language.

P.S [OT] - I just got a job integrating Lua into a research project at my
university! How cool is that? Getting *paid* to work with Lua!
