I notice you didn't choose to answer that.  My answer is, you can't.

Because if CMake adopts Lua as the build language, then the CMake
developers have to support all permutations of Lua that 3rd parties
are going to write.  I hanker to write metaprogramming tools for
CMake, to make translations from legacy build systems easier.  If my
target language has lots more ways of doing things, that increases my
metaprogramming burdens.
