lua is a C external (or rather a loader) and it's very easy to manage.
Once the lua loader is built for your system (trivial on Linux and
probably just as trivial on OS-X and MS-Windows, but I don't have
access to these systems) a lua objectclasses is the equivalent to an
abstraction, which especially means, that it's just as easily changed
and edited by its users without every needing to recompile anything.
