Just for my own understanding, could you give a few more details about
this? We don't have any package today named lua-std-<something>, so I'm
interested in understanding this "namespace std" thing and the
namespace pollution issue.

Also, is your automated luarocks package generation logic
(http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1015895/) going to name such a
package lua-std-debug and not lua-debug ?
