Well, it sure looks more like a big mess of intertwined ad-hoc
solutions. This is not getting better, even if you throw more
features into the pot. Not a sound design (pun intended).
If you have the option to do a major redesign, have a look at
flow-based or data-flow programming models:
The description is focused a bit on hardware architecture and on
special programming languages. But I think Lua is flexible enough
to accomodate both models.
