Okay. I'm surprised, is twitch.lua really that popular? Either way, I
don't personally use Twitch so I decline maintainership of the script.
When it last broke, I did still take a look at it, and at that time
the obvious solution involved setting custom HTTP request headers
(https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc/-/issues/25397); which isn't
currently possible, and would require new developments to at least the
HTTP access, then backporting them to 3.0. But a more practical solution
could also turn up.

More generally, if someone wants to remove broken and unmaintained
scripts from the compilation and installation targets, that's fine with

Also youtube.lua is now fixed.
