* Package name    : luxio
  Version         : 1.0

  Programming Lang: Lua
  Description     : Posix bindings for Lua

Lightweight UNIX I/O and POSIX binding for Lua

1. Reasonably good coverage of POSIX and BSD Sockets, including IPv6,
   and some GNU extensions.
2. Meant to be buildable anywhere that is POSIX.1-1996.  If it's not,
   there's a bug.  These are likely, as I have nowhere other than
   Linux to test.
3. Low-level.  You get the return values and the errno for the bound
   functions where possible.  Others take a table to fill in, or
   may return tables.
4. High-level wrapper library providing nice IO access and to misc.
   utility functions.  Generates useful errors in assert()able form,
   and provides meaningful __tostring metamethods to aid debugging.
5. A high-level poll()-based event dispatch library.
6. Sub-process handling library (read/write io.popen with job control).
7. A prototype POSIX Message Queue-based IPC scheme that can serialise
   most simple Lua values.  (No closures, userdata, etc)

This package is needed as a dependency for Gitano, for which an ITP will
be filed later.

I will be co-maintaining this package with Daniel Silverstone.
