NetBSD-current the main development branch for things that we know
we want, and that we are prepared to support for a long time, and
that mostly work. If any of those tests fail, then I'd say that
the code should not be in -current, but could be in a branch or in
pkgsrc or in some third party tree.
In the case of kernel Lua, some people are not convinced that we
want it, and some people are not convinced that the API is stable
enough that we should commit to long-term compatibility for it.
Although I think that developing in the main -current tree is
acceptable (especially if users are told not to expect as much
future compatibility as for most other parts of NetBSD), I would
have preferred to see development in a branch. It's certainly not
the clear-cut "no need for a branch" situation that you seem to
