instead of JS? theyre practically the same language, only JS calls its objects 'objects' instead of tables.. look closer. the differences are mostly syntax.. and heavier/less-agile implementations (typically C++ interpreters and heavily intertwined with browser code) w/ less non-html standard-library support.
maybe you could make a write a pretty trivial lua<>JS rewriter if you prefer ones syntax over the other, i prefer Ruby's syntax to either..

what exactly is the project? id be more interested in implementing CSS and DOM layout/events in Lua using Cairo/Glitz, so i can stop giving away 400mb of RAM and most my CPU to firefox, than the other way around..
have you benchmarked LuaJIT vs Tamarin?
