I would have jumped ship to JS or Python a long time ago because of
how anti-keyword and anti-syntax-sugar the Lua community is (at least
on the list), but I stay because it's easy to sandbox Lua and JS has
no real concept of operator overloading or sane scoping.

(I bring up Javascript because I like how they use 'continue' like
'goto': continue; & continue some_label;)
