Certainly there are two different paradigms. I just think that a thin API offers more power and performance, and allows the community to develop simpler interfaces on top of the standard. And though you say a high-level abstraction is simpler, I rather use the functions I already am familiar with than learn a Lua- specific abstraction that does the same thing.

Interpreted code will *always* be slower than native code. You can have power (expose the primitives) or performance (wrap function call sequences in single Lua functions), but I severely doubt you can have both.
