- Subject: Where to link to Lua packages on the Wiki?

I recently wrote a Lua library to do IP-to-country lookup, based on a
small, free database published by webnet77.com. The idea is that you can
do something like this:
iso,country = webnet77:lookup('126.96.36.199')
and get an answer like "BR","BRAZIL".
I have twice added a link to this package into the LibrariesAndBindings
section of the Wiki, only to have had it almost immediately removed on
both occasions as an inappropriate link -- apparently it counts as a "Lua
use," not as a library. (It's written as a module and you use it by
calling require(), so if it isn't a library, what is it?)
So my question is, where does one publish links to this sort of thing on
the Wiki? And how many other possibly useful little packages aren't on the
LibrariesAndBindings page as a result of this policy?
