For you, perhaps. But I can tell you from first-hand experience that
massively parallel scientific simulations--especially those
implemented in ten-year-old FORTRAN code--often generate millions of
warning and error messages even for relatively simple datasets,
portending postconditions of doom and wasted procesor time. I think
it's definitely worth helping Lua to compete in that arena. ;)
