AFAICT, there's nothing in Lua that hinders event-driven programming.
in fact, when i write a coroutine-based multitasking-like scheduler
(i've done it several times already), i start with an event-driven
central waiting call to drive it all.
also, having first-class closures is a godsend to do callback-style
that event-driven is quite natural in Lua. if you like to put
coroutines on top of that, it's a nice extra, but certainly neither
mandatory nor exclusive.
