Perhaps a Lua schema validator? Something Relax NG-ish (i.e.
expressive yet succinct).

The idea is to generically describe and validate the constraints of
some Lua configuration data (i.e. a Foo is a list of 0 or more Bar; a
Bar is a table containing 1 or more string keys pointing to Zig, Zag
or Foo; so on and so forth).

We've looked around for one before at work, and the closest we found
was an example Norman Ramsey posted
(, which was
interesting to play around with, but not general enough to cover any
but our simplest cases.

Don't know if it would be a suitable project, but I thought I'd throw
it out there. *shrug*
