Is this a description of something you are actually working on?

Some time ago [1] tried to produce something of the kind, presumptuously
called it viLua (visual Lua), got shot down because the prefix 'vi' makes
Unix old-timers long for the days of terminal-based text editors.

When I tried running it now, it wouldn't (Love has made some breaking
changes since 2011). But I can distinctly remember that it took me
more than two hours ...
