This seems a good reason to list it. (There are few uses that promote
reliability in the current list.)

They do not need to be forgotten, only not reminded by us :)

The goal of the list in the site is to promote Lua, not to document
history. And there are cases (not many) that to list that a project used
Lua is not good promotion (e.g., if the project switched to another
language later, or if it judged the use of Lua as a bad decision).

Of course, users are more than wellcome to start a comprehensive list of
all known uses past and present in the lua-users wiki.

PS: It is interesting to note that some time ago the list of uses of Lua
in its Wikipedia entry was a great source of discussion there.
