IMHO, a big part of the hype around node.js is that everybody
discovered that a callback-heavy framework is usable when you have
clean anonymous functions; but the downside that everybody suffers is
the lack of linearity in the code.  what most don't realize is that
it's because of the lack of coroutines or continuations.

a Lua async implementation using coroutines would get the same
advantages without all the pain.  that would make such a project
distinctively 'un-node'

so, naming your project 'node.lua' would be selling it low  :-)
