Actually, I had no idea - but thanks for the hint! I'll install it asap! :-)

Lua also runs ob *x, *doze or any other platform providing a plain
ANSI-C compiler, because its source code deliberately does not use any
features outside of those guaranteed by the ANSI-C standard libraries.

But I get your argument, and I agree. It *is* an additional dependency.

That's all I had hoped for!

I would feel honored.
