Ah, that's true - I'm assuming things again. On the one hand, it's a
little app server designed for scripts to have web interfaces (similar
to how embedded devices like routers are configurable with a browser).
On the other, it's yet another way to generate HTML, using LOM. This
is a straightforward way of writing XML as Lua data. E.g.

<fred a="1">wilma</fred>

tag = 'fred', attr = {a='1'},

Not really. For personal web apps it's less of an issue.

Ditto. After a day sweating with Eclipse open with a project on the
left monitor and Netbeans open with the form designer on the right
monitor, I like to think that there must be an easier way.
