Very cool!  Definitely a good use of Lua.

What would be extra cool is some integration with GnuPlot, so one can
have a look at generated curves, inspect data.  E.g. if you were doing
non-linear curve fitting.

It's Lua, not LUA; not an acronym, but a word meaning Moon.  (Besides,
LUA as an acronym has some Windows meaning)  This may be pedantic but
it really does look better as a word ;)
