I'm glad these packages will have good homes.

I think luadoc is the only (make)dependency for awesome, right?

Yeah, I was thinking of setting up an automated luarocks2arch system,
like Haskell's cabal2arch. I did something like this for most of the Chicken Scheme
modules (they're all in AUR, the automatic PKGBUILD-generater works but 
it's fragile and I haven't distributed it).

I just haven't had time to make any progress on this for lua. But I'm
willing to participate when I can.
