I know that language extension for Lua should be discussed on Lua mailing

succeeds) will be more open than ever, it might be also interesting to make
proposals for the evolution of Lua(JIT) through tested implementation in
LuaJIT. This is common in the C++ world, that the ISO committee prefers to
adopt new proposals where feasibility demonstration exists. It means that
someone already tackled the details...

Uh oh. Brace yourselves ...

Language design needs taste and experience. Sadly, most people and
committees lack that. Any you know, the road to hell is paved with
good intentions.

It looks like there's already a contest going on about the best way
to hijack and destroy LuaJIT with the most atrocious and hazardous

I could't possibly anticipate how fast things would go downhill
without leadership. The raptors can sense the void. They're already
sharpening their claws at the portal.

I'm outta here in a couple of days. Good luck. You'll need it.
