I would like to  support strongly the policy of  the lua developers to
keep the language   small and not  to  overload it with  features  and
different syntax  variants (though I  am German  and sometimes have to
struggle with  '~', too) .   To  me,  this  policy, together with  the
strong commitment to backward compatibility and  portability is one of
the outstanding features of the package.  Basically, it is the reason,
why we have chosen lua as our extension language.
