Truly, this is the strangest thread. Tim, your company's website says
you think Lua is a _great_ language. But your comments here have been
rude and self-involved. You're not listening. You seem to want the Lua
project to be something it's not. And the fact that the Lua source is
stable, portable C that's readable and understandable to any good
programmer gives you no comfort.
As a U.S. programmer for 25 years, I've written lots of software (some
of which you've heard of) using many different languages, never had a
problem getting paid, and never had to stoop to the sad business model
you seem to think is the gold standard. My condolences on your
situation, but that's not the only way.
After all is said and done, you've raised a valid point, and told us
why the unusual open source/closed maintenance model doesn't work for
you. The rest is noise.
