lua.vim : better Lua indent file

script type
This is a hastily hacked on version of the lua.vim indent file that ships with Vim. It auto-indents much better than the default one, especially when you have function arguments that span multiple lines inside of conditionals or just a function's multi-line argument list itself.

For an example of what it can accomplish, go here:

install details
Copy the lua.vim file into the indent/ directory of your $HOME/.vim/ or $HOME/vimfiles/
If it doesn't exist, then create an indent/ directory. This lua.vim will override the default one installed along with Vim.
Alternatively, just use something like vim-pathogen.
