Another thread just made me take a first look at Nyanga and it got me
thinking... Since we're talking wishlist here, what I would like to
see in the next Workshop is a track on other languages that compile to
Lua: MoonScript, Nyanga, Typed Lua, Metalua language extensions,
LuaJIT Language Toolkit.

That would be serious fun! (And as a bonus, we could throw all our
language-design wishes on these guys instead of Roberto for once ;-D
Imagine all the wonderful bikeshed discussions in the afterparty!)

who, after going through the severe pain of handling 64-bit ints in a
pure-Lua project (protobuf!), is just delighted that 5.3 is going to
have native 64-bit ints and expects nothing else from the next
revision of the language, really! (And I ignored this 64-bit issue for
years... Amazing how something suddenly becomes super important once
you finally need it. ;) )
