I think the main thing is:  give yourself a chance to adjust.  Despite
the initial reaction, really, the disadvantages of an incompatible
dialect greatly outweigh the short adjustment time needed for such
trivial issues as "--" vs "//" ... 

[I also initially tended to mistype comments in Lua, but I'd say I
_prefer_ "--" now -- it makes the comment text stand out more -- despite
still doing most of my programming in C++...]

are true and our happiness is assured.
