That would be the first step for any implementation, I take it -- we'd want
to evaluate the benefits to be had. If we agree to start experimenting with
Lua, the next step would be to create a high level design. Something I
might be able to spend time on.

@Julian, do you have a specific area of our code that would most benefit
from "moving 'up' from C"? Preferably some part of code that's currently
very much in flux?
