On the other hand, if one needs  "SNMP, or quick-dev a GUI , or web app, or parse XML or
YAML", then there are gazillions of battle tested, industrial strength,  C libraries at one's disposal.

So, in practice, there are many building blocks available right now, right there.

Now that the basics are covered out-of-the-box, and specifically tailored to one's needs and wants,  one can spend some quality time building what one really wants to build. Using Lua :)
