:It really has about 10 packages. The installer itself calls the Lua
:executable which communicates with the installer via the dfui protocol,
:for which the support is added to Lua by a C module. There are many
:other Lua modules used. All are for Lua 5.0, which is deprecated
:upstream. In theory, corecode has upgraded the whole thing to Lua 5.1,
:which is basically getting the latest versions of 3rdparty lua modules,
:upgrading dfuibe_lua to 5.1 and upgrading the scripts, since 5.0 and
:5.1 have different syntax. I have not looked at his results yet (is it
:already public?)
:It however would not be a problem to distribute Lua & friends, since
:they are usually MIT-licensed which is even less restrictive than BSD.

    Its sounding like I should just pull out the installer we used in
    the last release, fix the pkgsrc path, and use that for this release.
