Sometimes it is at least a bazillion times easier to rewrite than to
track down someone else's code and manage its evolution. You clearly
prefer the latter in all cases. From his initial question, Jean-Rene
seems to be more like you and less like Klaus (and I).

But luckily, if he's still even considering Lua, Jean-Rene can choose
whichever option suits his needs.

Dependencies are a source of many difficulties in software maintenance.
I like the near absence of dependencies in slnspider. Now if I could
just get my xterm to use a font that would work with it... :)
