I suspect a language can be both lightweight and strongly typed. The 
stong type checking can occur entirly at compile to byte-code time, 
while the byte-code interpreter can just assume that everything is 

Maybe lua could be broken into two, (1) the bytecode interpreter and 
the (2) the compiler to byte-code. This would allow for different 
front end languages, for example a pure functional front end.
