This is very sensible - it doesn't have to take away the freedom to
embed and extended (which is Dibyendu's anxiety).
I think the demise of the Kepler project left a void at the heart of
Lua-as-platform - it's most durable result is LuaRocks, but that's a
Hisham-plus-merry-band project now.
Kepler finished because there was no longer funding. Organization
needs funding - what might that mechanism be?
