If you're considering an embedded commercial offering with what appears to be a nice Lua binding another product to investigate is FancyPants from FluffySpider (I know, the name is a little much ;-) 

You can see the Lua binding examples here: 

I suspect you may be charged for the port to Raspberry Pi but it already supports several ARM development boards.

You might want look at Storyboard from Crank Software.

It is a UI framework designed for embedded with multiple render back ends supported and linux arm support.

It uses lua for glue logic.

Thank you all for your interest. It's not dead, just suspended. I've
got too much work at the moment. Presently all I can do is to keep it
in a working or semi-working state.

I invite everybody who is interested to get into it and to continue
development, and of course I'd be pleased to be help if difficult
problems arise.

Please note that I may profit from your work in that I got a request
for a rather complex user interface on custom hardware, for which I
shall provide the graphics stack beginning at the hardware level. If
this project comes to realization, I will do this using tekUI, and for
this I'd have to pick up development anyway.
