The rest of that I'll reply to later, just want to get something off my
chest before sleeping.

Turns out that lua needs readline.  Lua also needs ncurses.  Lua itself
is needed by the UI library I'm using (EFL at
http://enlightenment.org/ ).  I'm guessing that lua needs readline and
ncurses for it's stand alone lua shell.  Not something I need for the
final product, but likely it will come in handy for debugging.  I'll
see if I can patch that shell out when time comes for me to shrink the
result down to the bare minimum.  For now it stays.  I'm looking
forward to learning lua and using it in this project.

I remember you where thinking about using lua for toybox.  You also
would not need a stand alone lua shell, so you might be happy to see
that patch when I make it.

BTW, is anyone else on this list, or did you loose them all and I'm
the first to find it?  Seems awfully quiet in here.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
