I think you are quite right. I'm a big fan of Lua too, but I've
failed with the first larger project I tried writing completely in
Lua (less than 10K lines).
As a counter example, Nanoki, a wiki engine in pure Lua, clocks over
10K lines of Lua code and is no more -nor less- buggy than any other
piece of software of that size.
Clutches such a static typing only catch the most trivial of typos.
Anything else is solely on your lap. And no amount of paraphernalia is
going to save you there.
Just my 2¢.
