ion3, wireshark, vlc-nox. Those are three things which use Lua in library form
which may contribute towards it.  It seems ion3 is fairly negligible, but 20%
of popcon users have vlc-nox installed, and about 12% have wireshark-common.
While there will be some overlap, I imagine that counts for the vast majority
of the installed userbase.

I have repeatedly told Debian and other free-software developers to "Just add
Lua" when asked "How do I make this more easily configured / customised" so
it's nice to see that some of them are taking note of the evangelism from the
Lua community.
