At least in Debian luasql is packaged so that it's not a one package but each backend has their own pkg-config file. Handling the combinations of what parts are available and what are not is bigger change than what I thought to make in S2_6.

We already have an option to use the system Lua rather than the in-tree one, as of patch #2747. See that ticket for discussion of the pros and cons.

Should we do the same for luasql?

Some downstream distributions, such as Debian, like to avoid embedded code copies for reasons such as propagating security updates (policy). So they'll probably implement this anyway even if we don't (assuming they enable auth at all).
