That's obviously very much a matter of opinion... I don't think
they're annoying at all, and find Lua syntax in general better than
most, particularly for _reading_ code.
[e.g. I find Python-style syntax is often vastly less readable for
real-world code... so while it may offer some initial surface appeal

Admiration, n. Our polite recognition of another's resemblance to ourselves.
