It is still just an idea and will probably take some time before start

Well yes, that is pretty much a triggering factor for wanting do an
init system with lua as core component.
Also as that article says, part of the problem is that various things
needed by udev are in /usr (pci ids etc) which triggers the next idea:
daemon like hotplug2 that reads uevents from netlink socket, but
instead of udev rules run lua scripts....
The main problem with those ideas are not the core framework but all
the things around (i.e the init.d scripts that needs porting and the
udev helper programs and udev rules...)
