Indeed, it would.
The current "language/syntax" is a contraption best avoided. Years ago I
wrote (or tried to write...) some longish scripts in AutoHotkey and even
a few weeks later, they were completely, utterly incomprehensible to me.
(It's much worse than Perl, if anyone can believe that:->).
However, AutoHotkey's rock-solid hotkeys and the macro features are
unsurpassed, so I still use this part as a frontend for more complex
And as Philippe remarked, Lua-in-AutoHotkey is not going to happen
anytime soon, if ever.
