We turned to Lua exactly because we wanted to write for routers... I
think it's a great platform for that sort of work.
Lua is included in OpenWRT distribution, and is a dependency for several
tools there. For example, look around
http://downloads.openwrt.org/backports/0.9/Packages. But there's no apps
written natively on Lua, as the lack of a LuaSocket package will show :)
(i compiled it already, i posted the instructions in this list somewhere)
