- while I don't hate significant whitespace, it usually makes it hardto write full lambdas.
- terseness at the cost of readability is ok for low level languages
(hey, I _like_ bit-twiddling in C), but for scripts it creates more
friction between coder and maintainer.
- local by default?... i'm skeptical that it could be done well.
- predefined OOP: i don't mind it as long as it's easy to use (and
extend) from real Lua.
- i guess a prerequisite to using it as a "more comfortable for REPL"
dialect of Lua would be a _very_ low mismatch between both languages.
so that the user finds writing in MS easier even if still thinks in
Lua (because most of the system is still written in Lua). if that's
right, anything beyond plain text substitutions and some syntax sugar
would increase the impedance and force a "mind context switch" between
REPL conversation and core programming.
