Perhaps a Lua schema validator? Something Relax NG-ish (i.e.
expressive yet succinct).
The idea is to generically describe and validate the constraints of
some Lua configuration data (i.e. a Foo is a list of 0 or more Bar; a
Bar is a table containing 1 or more string keys pointing to Zig, Zag
or Foo; so on and so forth).
We've looked around for one before at work, and the closest we found
was an example Norman Ramsey posted
(http://lua-users.org/lists/lua-l/2006-12/msg00584.html), which was
interesting to play around with, but not general enough to cover any
but our simplest cases.
Don't know if it would be a suitable project, but I thought I'd throw
it out there. *shrug*
