This might just be enough rope to hang not only yourself, but the entire world population ten times over.

Spring is open source. If you're good enough with low level languages to need Terra, then you might as well hack Spring source directly instead of writing Lua scripts.

What if i added library functions to enhance lua-syntax- and want that speed up?
This is indirectly shanghain people to work in the engine-dev quary.
I protest strongly against this inhuman treatment of gamedevs.
Example:

> To lazy to for loop

Just imagine a game offering the terralang equivalent allowing for lua to be compiled down into a dll
