I added some comments on the PR. First I thought this is a duplicate of T2507 but technically it's not as pdns-recursor supports 2 types of lua file: lua-dns-script and lua-config-file. This task is for lua-dns-script while T2507 is for lua-config-file.

Incorporated the suggestions in the PR and pushed them up to github for review.

Do I need to do more to get the PR merged?

Maybe the problem was that it exposed a configuration only understood by pdns-recursor, so replacing it with something else would be impossible if we ever considered so? That was the reason for not allowing certain patches in the past.
