a brief look at murgaLua 0.6.8

Hi all,

I looked into the most recent murgaLua 0.6.8 package, and generally I was pleased by the plentitude of new features recently added.
While I was impressed by the possibilities of the luacom library (especially the speech synthetization example!), I nevertheless would opt to keep it out of official murgaLua main package, because it is completely specific to a single operating system. Wasn't it the main idea of murgaLua to provide a common runtime which runs on all supported platforms identically? I do not have any objections against providing luacom as an optional add-on package.
Similarly, I personally would not include the win32 specific parts of luasys. Furthermore, it looks like there are some overlaps between luasys and luasocket. For the sake of staying small, it would be useful to leave them out, however, I'm pretty aware that this makes maintenance more difficult.

One general problem of the recent additions is their general lack of documentation. As first step they should be mentioned somewhere in the doc/murgaLua.html page at least.

Best regards and thanks for all your hard work,
Gerald
