Nice.  What is prior art in this area?  I know of

already has adoption in the lua community, it makes sense to use it

be less fun that writing your own from scratch :)

I didn't realize that prior art actually mattered...

I say this because our SQLite bindings in src/lib/lua/sqlite were
homegrown, despite the fact that official Lua-SQLite bindings
have always existed upstream:

I.e. I'm not sure how to handle the suggestion to import an upstream
library, when "the prior art" demonstrated in src/ with sqlite is to NOT
use upstream libraries.

Maybe the author of src/lib/lua/sqlite didn't realize that the offical
bindings existed. But at the same time, maybe it's a sign of what
NetBSD's stance *should* be regarding a situation like this. I don't

At any rate, I'm not gonna let that unanswered question stop me from
plopping in my own bindings in the near term.
