Well, having worked with statically typed langauges such as Java I can
understand the distaste for nil in all it's forms. But beyond the
likes of Java nil is really not that much of a problem and I fail to
see how removing it from Lua would make anything better.
It would make working with databases harder (NULL == nil) for starters.
I suspect that the motivation is either religious or academic.
