vim.eclass supports the following foreign language interfaces currently: perl, python and ruby. Vim supports lua as well, so why don't we let vim.eclass support lua?
The patch worked for me; I emerged vim and gvim with USE=lua. The Vim says +lua in :version and :lua print '123' worked in the Vim.
# I'm new to Gentoo development. I looked for a place for requesting new feature but couldn't find besides this bug report forum. If it's wrong place, I'm happy to report this to the right place if you can let me know about it.

patch for vim.eclass
The line number of the original file, vim.eclass, looks changed slightly, so I updated my patch. Note that the previous patch still works well.
This would be really nice. What is the problem here?
This definitely would be great. Without this plugins like https://github.com/Shougo/neocomplete.vim cannot be used with vim available in gentoo which is pretty silly if you ask me.
This is waiting for bug #469010 so old ebuilds can be dropped or for me to migrate away from using the vim eclass which will probably be done around the upcoming 7.4 release.
Added to >=7.4 in CVS.
