Hmmm... yes... well... I still have to see that famed simplicity

why does it need to be a killer app ?
Well.. it doesnt... but at least something full fledged. It would not
hurt if it was of general interest as well :)
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.
Excellent! Is it available publically? Got an URL? Looking forward to
see it :)
