True, but not helpful. When you're in a memory-restricted environment
(I've got 16MB which is simultaneously my storage space and my execution
space; the more data I have stored, the less room I have to execute
programs), the decision to drop superfluous APIs is a rational one.
What would you be saying to someone who wants to embed Lua into some kind
of controller? Would you be as calmly dismissive? Or do you reserve this
kind of dismissal for the Windows-related platforms?
