I like the API and your docs are great. Do you know if there's anyone already working on concurrent server tools? At first glance, it looks like a WSAPI server implemented with LuaGravity might be a good alternative to xavante for applications where there are events that don't necessarily originate on the web interface. I'm thinking of Twisted, but without a lot of a lot. :)
The problem with synchronous frameworks, of course, is the boundary with asynchronous systems like data storage. The loop execution model looks like the way to handle that. This is nice. :)

I have just released LuaGravity 0.6.
LuaGravity is a reactive language that implements the synchronous approach for concurrency.
It is roughly based on Esterel and FrTime, two synchronous languages, the former having an imperative style, the latter being functional.
LuaGravity is implemented as a (pure-Lua) set of runtime extensions to the Lua language.

Changes in LuaGravity 0.6:
^ Several changes in the API.
+ `deactivate` and `reactivate` functionality.
