Thanks for your suggestions :) I'm just using the standard LuaDoc
templates, so I haven't bothered tweaking the presentation. I think
most Lua users are familiar with the layout anyway. As far as
including the source files, that would bloat up the downloadables. I
agree hard links would be nice, but I'm not willing to sacrifice a
small overall package size.

My chief concern was the contents of the documentation, not layout. I
just wanted to make sure it has everything necessary for Lua

Take care,
