There is an ongoing discussion in the NetBSD community about the "right" language for
discussion rotaes a bit around JSON and Lua as possible candidates, with probably
a majority leaning towards JSON because it is smaller (some say a factor of ~16
compared to Lua).
Where does the factor of 16x come from?
I've been interested in Lua as a config format but haven't had luck with
proposals at work. I've always thought the ability to provide hooks or
extensions from a config file would be powerful.
