Shame you couldn't make it to the suckless conference. I would have
been interested in your talk about vis.

As far as embedable scripting languages go Lua seems like the most
suckless solution. For me the much lauded simple "stack-like" Lua-C
interface is not *that* easy to understand though.

The advantages of the libtermkey input handling were not immediately
evident to me when briefly looking at the code. What was the
motivation for using the library?
