I don't remember my reasoning about "fix file encoding preservation on read", but I clearly agree with it, as on deleting my old zile-stable checkout (for the latest C version), I find that I have .patch files which correspond to the last three commits you mention.

I'm a bit puzzled by the inclusion of "a5cdea18bb2: fix file encoding preservation on read", since as far as I can tell it was already fixed long before the date of this bug report, and didn't need any C compilation.

Patch #8007 addresses commit "ce2ffe81d17: reimplement shell-command with gnulib's pipe-filter-ii", again without the need for new C (because it's in luaposix).

The other three commits remain to be addressed.

The following commits on the C branch should in principle be ported to the Lua branch:

fd19d377ef0: add and use memrmem
4fb34ecac95: use memmem
a5cdea18bb2: fix file encoding preservation on read
ce2ffe81d17: reimplement shell-command with gnulib's pipe-filter-ii
516d9951896: use gnulib's copy-file module to replace copy_file

The problem is that they all require adding C compilation back into the Zile Lua build system. But it looks as though that bullet may have to be bitten.
