    add lua language implementation
    What is missing:
    + Functions: module, getfenv, setfenv, math.modf, table.sort
    + Parser: needs to be more flexible
    + Compiler: needs more extensive work to properly handle all possible
    cases of variable arguments, multiple returns, and loops
    + Language: Variable arguments and unpacking of multiple returns. (For
    example we need to be able to handle something as complex as
    print(unpack({...})), which is easy with Lua's explicit stack but will
    require lots of tree-il gymnastics, or perhaps modifications to better
    allow different calling conventions. (For instance -- how would we
    support Python or Ruby, where keyword arguments are gathered into a
    hashtable and passed as a single argument?)
    What is there:
    A fair shot at supporting Lua 5.1, not quite a drop-in replacement, but
    not far from that goal either.

    clarify compile-glil error messages
    * module/language/tree-il/compile-glil.scm (vars->bind-list, flatten):
      Make internal self-checking error messages more clear, for
      implementors of other languages.
