Coroutines. Look at any non-trivial node.js program, it's an awful mess of nested callbacks; very hard to read, impossible to maintain. Coroutines fix that, and that's a killer feature by itself.
Performance questions might also weight in favor Lua, but that's really secondary, compared to making user code maintainable.
