I do find 1 thing genuinely un-likeable about Lua syntax with respect
to build systems.  Strings would require quotes.  That's a big waste
of time when you're writing strings all the live long day.

Ah, back to Tcl, eh?

Similarly, ${table} instead of unpack(table).

Python uses *table, i.e. * as unary operator - might fit Lua as well.
