Yes, it isn't that difficult to make Lua look like another language,
but the difficulty comes when people expect the same semantics ;)
people who are expecting the same forgiving number-string
It is IMHO a good idea that scripting languages keep distinct syntax
so that users know that this is a different animal.
Besides, I can't ever see why someone would miss '&&' !
