No, the subject is accurate.

The original post _starts out_ talking what you say, but quickly changes
topic to that of the subject line (implementation of the Lua VM in non-C
languages); the ensuing thread the follows in discussing that topic.

Is that of any interest besides historical?  What advantages does a
haskell implementation offer?

[The main reason people seem to discuss in the thread for various non-C
implementations is better integration with existing systems that aren't
so friendly to C code.]
