Given that Lua is so commonly used as scripting for other projects, it
makes sense to incorporate lua support - it can serve as a slightly
more convenient bridge from Erlang to other systems, or as Timo
suggested, to take advantage of it's bindings where Erlang lacks them.

Improved interoperability is always good.
