The syntax/compiler/indent/etc support would be kick booty, as for the comment issue I’d vote for dont bother. If its too much of a pain wait for the rewrite. Only 5 people use Lua and its not that big of a show stopper (the –space workaround isnt so tough) and personally I’d rather have you working on the exciting things rather than a comment thing that only affects one language which isnt very popular (yet).
But, anyway, Cool! Thanks
