heys guys,

why precisely was Lua chosen as the implementation language?/  ANT (ant 
is not TeX)/, see http://ant.berlios.de/ was registered: 2005-Nov-23 
10:38.  as far as i'm aware, dynamic languages are generally much slower 
than those that are statically typed.

and i'm not trolling, i just want to know why.  please share your thoughts.
