Does it really use overlays?  They can be _much_ less efficient than
text properties when used in large numbers... (so it's not recommended
to use them for typical syntax-highlighting type uses)

I'm kind of confused what to do about lua-mode...

I'd like to get something integrated into the Emacs distribution, but
when I talked to one of the lua-mode authors before, he indicated he
wanted to completely rewrite it, etc, ... but he's since disappeared,
and my pings have gone unanswered.
