I haven't dug much into Lua source code, it seems to be good but a bit
overcomplicated by lots of silly macros. (Don't know what is BSD-like
there.) As to the specification, it is simple and observable, all its
components (language syntax and semantics, C API, standard library) are
extremely clean and reasoned. For this reasons, coding in Lua is fun.
Implementation is simple and efficient. Simplicity and clarity are
major goals of Lua developers.
