Well, yes. But still the lua loader allows users to get the same
"power" as developers have without the need to learn and setup all the
stuff that's required to compile exernals. That's where the similarity
between lua and abstractions is. And as Lua is *designed* as an
embedded language, it can be shipped as a tiny binary without any
dependencies easily. lua.pd_linux statically built with Lua included
is 220 KB. Pd-extended is between 15 and 22 MB, zipped. What's easier
to manage?

But who am I telling this? ;)
