Another short response to that question:
* No Java-like OO
* No string support, only 1byte char lists.
* Awkward syntax
* Meta-tables makes people feel uncomfortable
At least the last point is easy to fix: just remove metatables and
we'll have a better language :-)
I'm always amused seeing people searching for a different language...
as long as it's identical to the one they are used to.
I'd say metatables stuff may indeed get messy, mostly because there's no
standard OO. I haven't heard of full OO implementations at all, by which
I mean support for properties, hence privates; reflection. That's the
number 1 candidate for standard library IMO.
