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.
