Gah my head! :)

Prosody is currently using - it's
working great. However other projects are using others, and LuaRocks
perhaps contains one of them (I don't know which). They all have the
same name (especially if you discount punctuation), they all have
differing APIs...

...and we need to package one of them for Debian. I haven't decided on
a solution yet, but ultimately it's hurting everyone to have multiple
incompatible libraries like this.
