Lua is a great binding language, and I'm impressed the lua guys are willing to drop things from the language and streamline it without regards to backcompat between major versions.

I'd love for 6 to clean up (and i know it will never happen) and use 0 indexing instead of 1 indexeing.

It also needs a better C api for table manipulation.
