I'm of opinion that this device driver can and should stay outside the tree
until its utility can be demonstrated without this much strain.
At last this is one of the reasons why we support kernel modules.
The inclusion and use of Lua in base, for use in userland and the
kernel, has been the subject to public discussion, it has been the topic
of a GSoC project, it has been presented at many conferences, it is well
received by the community at large, it has users, it has attracted new
users to NetBSD,
I would like to underline the "attracted new users to NetBSD" with an e-mail thread I've just read on DragonFly BSD kernel mailing list:

It seems true that Lua support is attractive to users and developers :)
