I mentioned murgaLua which I just found in another thread over a year old, and I thought it would be better to have all of us testing it out by posting it here with some ideas.

http://www.murga.org/devPages/murgaLua/

The first things I thought of for it would be either to make GUI front ends for scripts using the networking abilities for auto-updates, or perhaps as a Hub Network server? (Might need the "Just in Time" compiler - http://luajit.luaforge.net/ - to make it fast enough for that one)

Next I thought it could integrate some music with whatever your making with it using the mikmod library http://mikmod.raphnet.net/files/libmikmod-3.2.0-beta2.zip and mod/xm/s3m/it files from http://www.modarchive.com/ (remembering to give credit to the authors of them)

Lastly, integrating gzip compression from http://www.zlib.net/zlib-1.2.3.tar.bz2 makes sense given the amount of lua files that might end up in a project, also any xml files you use are optimal for compression given all the repetitive tags ;)

Add your ideas, or just have fun playing with it and let us know how you went!

Cheers
