Why don't we all rally behind Luarocks and try to fix those drawbacks?
Not a bad idea, but I'd like to point out (as others have done) that
binary installation on Windows must be painless (read: click-and-go) for
non-programmers that just want to run and possibly modify Lua applications.
Also, many programmers are not willing to install a C compiler on
Windows and to spend hours or days to make it all work, especially when
Python installs just fine (well, almost, but there is Anaconda
Distribution for advanced users).
