It wasn't meant to indicate the total size of the flash. I would expect
(and implied) additional libraries and the actual application on the
device, which was the reason I was talking about Lua's "ROM-able"
binary. My suggestion for the next iteration would be "Fits into 128k
ROM, 64k RAM per interpreter state". This should be solid, even if
standard libraries were missing on the target system. Still, the space
for a line of text that size is very limited, suggestions for better
wording are welcome.
