One problem with something like murgalua is it's only as strong as it's weakest link.  If one of the components has a problem, all of murgalua is tarnished.  Right now, it seems like luasocket is pretty weak.  The documentation is scarce and I've found 2 serious problems just in superficial testing.  It's hard to overcome that with advertising.

Yup :-(

That's what I need feedback for :-)

One problem is that no headers are returned on a get request.  If you pass it a URL for a site that doesn't exist, luasocket just wretches and heaves.  I also tried the coroutine example for luasocket in the 5.1 "Programming in Lua" book and couldn't get it to work at all.  Of course, it's a complex example, so it's not too frightening that it doesn't work and it's definitely possible I botched something up.  On the other hand, if a powerful technique like efficiently processing multiple http get requests worked, that would be a major selling point for murgalua.

Have you taken a look at COPAS ? It's in there to help with concurrent networking issues in LuaSocket ...

As for your other issue, it would help if you send me more info (code examples), and I can get it working or fix the bug that breaks it :-)

I would really appreaciate code examples that demostrate problems because it saves me time (which is my most precious commodity right now).

I was thinking of writing a simple multi-threaded HTTP server (with COPAS), is that what you are thinking of ?

Cheers
