Sorry for the top post.  LuaRocks is awesome and Lfs suites my needs so it makes little difference but it leaves me with questions. 

Could someone please *name* a filesystem that they use Lua on that is *not* windows or posix compliant? 

Also, I have trouble thinking that filesystem access can't be generalized enough to make it extensible. Please, educate me otherwise.

Of all the many excellent Lua modules available on LuaRocks, this is the
one whose capabilities are most urgently needed in Lua 5.4. If it would
need a caveat about system dependence, so be it: we already have that
for two existing routines in the io library.
