Discussion on: 5 reasons you should learn Lua

I don't agree. Lua as a programming language has all it takes : garbage collection, iterators, lambdas, speed, simple but powerful types...
It just lacks a better standard library to be able to "do more".

Lua is definitely not limited as a language. I find that it's focus on being a configuration language to create some not so desirable synthetic choices.

I would probably much rather write a parser for Lua than yaml though.
