I also would like to see NeoLua, in the script part, to be full compatible to the original. So, it is possible to take a script and run it in both worlds. But to achive this, there are some functions to need to be implemented (LINK
We have investigated your 2 main reason early enough, so it was easy to change the parts in the a small set of lua scripts.
"module" keyword? Never heart of that.
The problem of the package stuff of the c-lua is, that it havy depends on C. And this is hard to emulate. The most common case I noticed is the function "reqiure". That I hopefully implemented in a "good enough" way.
It is good that people use the library. So, it will hopefully strong enough to be a good alternative.
Do you now a good explaination/.net library of the POSIX expression syntax?
What me converns is: "A typical implementation of POSIX regexp takes more than 4,000 lines of code. This is bigger than all Lua standard libraries together. In comparison, the implementation of pattern matching in Lua has less than 500 lines. "
It is still on my plan, but I also have a lot to do on other projects, currently.
