It's always good to think outside the box, but does this make commercial
sense? If you have a low-volume application, why worry about a price
difference that's the equivalent of a few hours labour at minimum wage? If
you have a large-volume application, it is surely more cost effective to
invest the development time in programming it in assembler to minimise the
memory requirements and optimise power consumption and performance?
For Lua, the mind boggles at a CG cycle where RAM has to be swapped in and
out from a serial RAM into a keyhole of a few hundred bytes (typical) on the
