Why not use Lua for your DDL?  Lua is very flexible as a data
description language, which is where it started life. Very large
datasets can be read in quickly in Lua format, and you have the
advantage of all the built-in error checking.

So show us what you want your DDL to look like, and we can give
suggestions on how to make it Lua-friendly.
