[Heh... "plugin"... :-]

The Emacs lua-mode I use seems to work very well, actually.  I've seen
other people say the indentation code is crufty but it doesn't seem to
be much of an issue in practice.  The one issue I find kind of annoying
is lua-mode's mishandling of "_" (it treats it as a word-component, not
just as a symbol-component), but that's likely quite easy to fix.

Jürgen Hötzel has stated his intention to completely rewrite lua-mode
(for reasons of both code-cleanliness and copyright status), but
apparently hasn't had the time to do much yet.  In his words:

So if anyone has some spare time... :-)


Politeness, n. The most acceptable hypocrisy.
