Yah, I started thinking about that once this discussion started.
I'm neutral-leaning-for inclusion of Lua, especially if an option to build it
into the kernel were available. Seems like you could do some really
interesting stuff, including "safe" kernel modules, in addition to packet
Hell, it might even be possible (or even USEFUL) to replace some of the
less-used / less-performance-critical bits of the kernel with Lua scripts...
