I'm not yet ready for either uploading to the server or
making a tag but anybody wishing to test out the current
version can install it using Luarocks on the attached rockspec
(almost identical to the one Philipp provided).

Main differences between 1.0.2 and 1.0-4:

1. Note the hyphen: LuaRocks naming convention in effect.
2. Works under Lua 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3. LuaJIT not tested, does
LuaRocks support it?
3. 'block.move' renamed to 'block.copy' since there now is
4. The description of "trisect" has been rewritten.
