At the same time, Lua is designed to have a clean subset if you
just want to use Lua code for config files, using tables to dump raw
data, etc. It has a lot of sophisticated features, but you aren't
forced to learn them upfront (or even to know they exist). Very few
languages have pulled that off.
I went from Python to Lua too, FWIW.
