The other half of this equation is automating the source code builds
of hundreds of modules on many platforms so that distribution
maintainers (e.g. Lua for Windows) as well as end users can easily
build from source.  Currently, Lua for Windows is assembled from
binaries contributed by individual authors, which is not desirable IMO
for reasons discussed herein.  LuaRocks/LuaDist can solve the building
problem, though currently there are a handful of Lua for Windows
modules its not yet compiling.
