That's exactly the point I was going to make if the discussion continued
much longer :-). I am mostly a C programmer. Because of that, I tend 
to miss some of C's *features* in Lua. Nevertheless, Lua is not C (or any 
other language for that matter) and I like it the way it is.

If you want a Scheme without parens, take a look at Rebol. I personally
don't like it, but its semantics are closer to what you were talking about.
