Recently I wrote new dissector by pure Lua[1] and I am thinking about
submitting a request to include the dissector to Wireshark.
But as far as I checked upstream, there are no pure Lua dissector yet.
And I don't know where shoudld I put the code in and how to modify

So my question is
Is there any guideline to include pure Lua dissector? If no guideline yet,
why don't we make it?

This is my personal opinion, now Lua became good for writing a new
dissector and samples like /test/lua/dissector.lua is really great. New
dissector written in Lua request will increase in the future.
