The main reason is that stock lua believes that all text files
use the native line ending. That is a big nono in TeX land, where
files are often transported to and fro (networked) machines.

Yes, you are limited to just zziplib and the set of libraries that are
also used by pdftex (for now). The other stuff is either modified by me
or not really a dynamic library at all.
