CorsixTH isn't something we've approved of but I could see this being useful for those that don't want to deal with Lua's own IO functions.

This is also a dependency (well dependency of a dependency) for the Awesome Window Manager (T1026) which I've been working on creating a package for.

I've submitted two package diffs for this, one built against the lua5.1 runtime and the other against the standard (5.3) Lua runtime. I've also created a LuaJIT build locally but I haven't committed that as it conflicts with the lua5.1 build of LFS due to the shared library being installed to the same path, and I'm not sure how the package maintainers deal with that situation . The 5.1 build is compatible with LuaJIT though so that can be installed if someone wants to use it with LuaJIT. But I can also commit the LuaJIT build diff if that's the way to go.

D2907 - lua-filesystem
D2908 - lua51-filesystem

Hope the diffs are okay :)
