probably it could , but there is no browser which supports client side
lua, and we just happily try to leave the age of plugins behind us, so
even if someone wrote a working plugin for a browser, i'd rather not
create websites which require to install it.
i am using lua on the server side a lot, i think other people do that,
too, there's just not such a fuzz around it.
