Keep in mind that we already have some NetBSD/Unix specific modules in base,
like GPIO access or an sqlite module (e,g, to dig stuff from nan pages). This
module complements what we already have and makes Lua in base generally more
useful. Plus it is easy to extend if needed.
If the license (3-clause) is of concern, it can be changed to whatever is
So I'd say, yes please Sevan, go ahead an committ it. ok mbalmer@ if you want.
