Yes, I know but lpeg stands for LuaPEG 

I don't have strong opinions about that, I think I'll follow your
suggestion but as an exception since it is just an additional 'l', but
almost every lua library has 'lua' in the name, keeping it makes annoing
repetitions in the packages names.

For example the binary packages for the luafilesystem library are 
called liblua5.1-filesystem* and not liblua5.1-luafilesystem*, hope you
like it.  Here it would be liblua5.1-peg* instead of liblua5.1-lpeg.
