Actually I have 3 potential interests in Lua:
- Lua for low level 3d graphics math
- Lua for CMake builds
- Lua for making money in the game industry

Of these, I've analyzed the case for migrating CMake to Lua the most
thoroughly.  Squirrel is irrelevant to CMake, and I think it's too
early for it to be worth any money in the game industry.
