Actually, my crying out loud was because I had confused two different
'small utilities' in my mind: I had thought that busybox was written
using Lua---and was disappointed that they didn't also have Lua.
In fact it is Tomsrtbt (the amazing small boot floppy) that uses Lua.
So I have stopped crying out loud ;-)
I would still like to get Lua going on the maemo platform.
