Over the past few months I've been working on a branch that upgrades
NSE to use Lua 5.2. I'll start off by giving you the location of the
branch so you can try it out:

Thanks Patrick, this is exciting stuff!  I'm pretty sure we will want
to upgrade to Lua 5.2.  I tested your branch
(https://svn.nmap.org/nmap-exp/patrick/nse-lua52) on Linux and it
seems to be working fine.  On Windows, it compiled, but I haven't been
able to get it to work.  It gives me this message:

$ ./nmap -A -T4 scanme.nmap.org

[Rest of Nmap report cut.  It was fine except that there wasn't any

I haven't tried it on Mac OS X yet.  Hopefully someone will give it a
try on that platform once the Windows issue is fixed.

I tested it on OS X 10.7.3 without problems.
