Here, Lua has improved the code in general. We used to do 100% in C,
and especially younger talent had its problems with memory management,
Once we introduced Lua, productivity began to soar. Lua is a revelation.
We are currently at ~193'000 lines of C code (that includes third party
code like Lua itself), ~ 83'000 lines of Lua code, ~ 40'000 lines of Lua
templates, 128'000 lines of HTML, 40'000 lines of CSS (again, third
party code included), and, of which we are proud the most, exactly 0
lines of perl code.
Time to check that code with Luacheck, I guess. Tnanks for making it
