Hmmm... yes... well... I still have to see that famed simplicity manifest itself in anything more ambitious than diminutive code snippets. Where is that full fledged, killer Lua application lurking?

why does it need to be a killer app ?
i have hacked up a specialized http proxy server in lua; it's fast enough for the purpose, and it's infinitely faster to modify than the equivalent c/c++ program. it's not a killer app, and will probably be re-implemented as part of a web server, but it was (relatively) quick to develop, it's multiplexed and error-trapped using coroutines.... and when a server dishes up something it can't understand, i can patch it there and then.
