There are two reasons why I won't remove libtolua from the Enigma

1) You already mentioned tolua's (char*)/(const char *) bug.  Well, you
didn't mention it's a bug: the Lua bindings created by tolua contain
explicit (const char* ) casts whereas the corresponding function in
libtolua is declared to take an char * argument.  My compiler chokes on
this, and so should yours. Manually patching enigma_lua.cc every time
it's recreated is certainly not an option.

2) Having to install Lua is already enough hassle for most users.

You are free to use the libtolua that comes with Debian for building
your packages, but I do care about non-Debian users.  Sorry.

Looks good, but may need a few changes to make it work with other

I'm glad you're again maintaining the Debian package.  And don't forget
to tick off the last remaining Enigma "bug" in the bug database :-)

Have fun,
