I don't get the need for the config file thing. I for one came to Lua,

I would say, and looking at the page linked by Steve confirms this, that there is always a
need to read existing config. file, from Windows' .ini files to Java's .properties files
and all the variants around.
It is similar to the idea of supporting XML in Lua: not necessarily for internal usage,
but just to communicate with the outer world.
