Annotation of wikisrc/projects/project/lua_bindings_chicken_and_egg.mdwn, revision 1.1

1.1     ! mspo        1: [lua](http://www.lua.org/) is obviously a great choice for an embedded scripting language in both [kernel space](https://www.netbsd.org/gallery/presentations/mbalmer/fosdem2012/kernel_mode_lua.pdf) and [user space](https://www.netbsd.org/gallery/presentations/mbalmer/fosdem2011/lua_in_netbsd.pdf).
        !             2: 
        !             3: However, there exists a issue where lua needs [bindings](http://lua-users.org/wiki/BindingCodeToLua) to interface with NetBSD for it to be useful.
        !             4: 
        !             5: Someone needs to take on the grunt-work task of simply creating lua interfaces into every possible NetBSD component.
        !             6: 
        !             7: That same someone needs to produce meaningful documentation.
        !             8: 
        !             9: As this enhances lua's usefulness, more lua bindings will then be created, etc.
        !            10: 
        !            11: This project's goal is to set that inertia by attempting to define and create a solid baseline of lua bindings.
        !            12: 
        !            13: ### Here is a list of things to possibly target
