I still haven't seen a use case for in-kernel Lua. I mean, an example (preferably a working example) of something useful that could not easily be done without in-kernel Lua. I'd prefer not to see it added to the base system without a use case.

I think this (a use case) is absolutely necessary.

Does anything even use the userland Lua in the base system? Some plausible use cases were described some time ago, but have any been implemented?

I would like to see an answer to this question as well. I did a little (admittedly incomplete) looking for in-tree users a few weeks ago, and didn't see any.
