It's a language for embedding. You add as much debugging tools as you need in your app.

Lua does not have nearly has much resources as those big languages. If you want an all-in package, I think it is up to the community.

There are already enough competitors in the Perl-scripting-type niche. If you think there's room, you make it happen. Lots of attempts in the past, nothing really stuck, but there are some good stuff.

Donald Trump would say that there are a lot of opportunities here.

Nothing but noise on the list these days.
