Excuse me for asking...this is the first time I've heard about Lake and
I'm very new to Lua to which I was brought via premake, so wonder how
does it Lake compare with it?

Let me say, that in the past I liked Haskell's cabal (when fiddling with
Haskell), played a bit with waf when considering to use Python for our
projects and thought to use Cmake, but decided to learning some Lua and
having more human-friendly build system is better, really
curious of Lake or another-lua-based build system. ;)

D is the language we are targetting know, and premake has support for
it, and we plan to develop on Linux, but have multi-platform (Mac OS &
Windows) support, along with the possibility to create binaries for
those non-Linux platforms (ala Cpack).
