David and I were just discussing that, in fact. A lot of the
dependencies involved are artificial, they're 'accidental
complexities' that come from framework madness. (This is a temporary
delusionary state which happens when you are writing large libraries)

Most of the modules can be used on their own, with a few little
changes. So I may be taking away a few bits of functionality for the
next PL release, but it will be Lua 5.2 compatible.
