Bug#727170: RFP: lua-alien -- Pure Lua extensions

Axel Beckert-8
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : lua-alien
  Version         : 0.7.0
  Upstream Author : Fabio Mascarenhas
* URL or Web page : http://mascarenhas.github.io/alien/
* License         : MIT
  Description     : Pure Lua extensions

Upstream description:

  Alien is a Foreign Function Interface (FFI) for Lua. An FFI lets you
  call functions in dynamic libraries (.so, .dylib, .dll, etc.) from Lua
  code without having to write, compile and link a C binding from the
  library to Lua. In other words, it lets you write extensions that call
  out to native code using just Lua.

I maintain GNU Zile in Debian. Upstream currently works on a
reimplementation of Zile in Lua which seems to become "Zile 3".

This library seems to be a dependency for that rewrite.

It is awesome you package zile 3!
I'll put these lua libs in a git repo so that you can tell me if
they works soon.

My idea was to try to get it working, see how mature it is and then
maybe upload a package to experimental. But besides the missing
build-dependencies, the upstream build system still looks quite buggy.
Had to patch configure.ac and multiple Makefile.am file which aren't
called that name. I hope that will get better.

Thanks!
