Naw, there's a much simpler explanation -- the original poster

Umm ... it's probably rude to reply to myself, but maybe
Lua Uppercase Acronym
is a better, self-referential expansion of "LUA"
I consider it worse since it misses out on the message "I am wrong", the
actually innovative part.
Moreover, its seriousness could even convince someone that Lua is
actually to be spelled LUA (urgh! cough! cough! :-D).
You know, from the time of FORTRAN and BASIC, acronyms are like spells:
yell it aloud (or litter your monthly report for the management with
them) and all your problems magically go away :-)))
