Lua on Gentoo - progress report #1

Following with the work to improve the Lua programing language on Gentoo, I created an overlay where I'm working on the experimental stuff. Currently I'm working to support the usage of LuaJIT as the main Lua implementation (using an eselect module, that I'm writing as well). There's nothing ready for usage yet, but the work is going fine.

After that, I'll work on the creation of lua.eclass (actually I already have an eclass done, but it needs a major rewrite and improvements).

This process is pretty slow because I'm working alone and this is not my main task as Gentoo developer. :(

Thanks.
