Yes, I was unclear, sorry. Christian answered already to that.

I can't quantify that. Lua is a nice language, wich I discovered for
teaching (combined with a nifty game which is wonderfully hackable it
makes for a very powerful motivator, but I disgress ;-).

Just for trivia: Freshmeat (a kind of directory of mostly free
programming projects) lists 16 projects using Lua (7668 in C, 46 in AWK,
23 in Forth, 13 in Pike, as random points of comparison). But don't
take those numbers very seriously.
