Try comparing this clause from the readme:
"Nothing should be put into it except what's *impossible* or
*impractical* to do in pure Lua"
... with a slight rewrite that removes the "im" from "impossible" and
"Nothing should be put into it except what's *possible* or *practical*
to do in pure Lua"
As written in the readme, the clause insists that only the impossible
or impractical to do in Lua should be included in Hydra. If so, why
include Lua in Hydra?
Optimally, writers should never do their own proofreading, unless
they're writing code. The debugging algorithms for human written
languages aren't ready for prime-time yet. :-)
