Sounds like a fantastic idea and well-worth supporting!

It's possible to get more natural notation with shell commands:

I _distinctly_ remember that Hisham and a few others were getting
excited about a 'lua shell' library which would support pipelines and
the like, but I can't find the reference.

Otherwise, I imagine that luaposix will get you most of the way.
