I went throught the list from link above. Lots is not interesting at
all (like pax...). Other of the stuff could be used directly from
luaposix (basename, cwd, chdir etc) and many of them could be
implemented together with a 'find' function (a directory recurser).
That would solve the 'chmod -R' kind of stuff.
so i think what would be nice is some lua functions for those:
Many of those are fairly trivial to implement. Some others could go
into separate lua modules (lua-procps with ps/kill/free/sysctl?) file
could be a lua binding to libmagic?
So I think it is a convenience lib with the basic stuff like cp/mv
that is mostly needed.
