why and what the conseqeunces of such an addition would be.

Please do not add more things which have to be maintained to the base

If people want it they can use it from pkgsrc.

I think I explained why I want it in base, and that I am willing to maintain it.

You stanza "If people want it they can use it from pkgsrc" is wrong. Lua is a language to be embedded. If I want it in my software, it has to be in base.
