I don't know about the others on this list, but I appreciate it when I
don't need to include another library (especially a behemoth like Boost)
in order to bind C++ classes to Lua. Lua is reknown for being a small,
fast scripting language/library which compiles & builds almost anywhere
provided there is a standard C compiler with standard C libraries. The
idea that a C++ binding library can be made/used with standard C++
compilers and libraries without needing third-party libraries has the
same appeal.

This from someone who uses C/C++ pretty much to the exclusion of all
else. "Lean & mean" is a desirable trait in libraries I use.
