One of the sweet(suite) things about Lua is that there are few

The "core" functions are all worth reviewing.

Hmmm... I mean the search function in the wiki should perhaps be more visible:

Regarding Lua's fat or lack of, I sometime feel that Lua tries to be too clever by half (e.g. list as table) :P

That said, I do feel that there is a bit too much syntactical (synthetical?) sugar...

print "hello" vs print( "hello" ) would at first glance look like a pointless and confusing deviation from the norm.
