I think its less obvious to a user who'd never heard of lua until recently.
I think it would be very helpful if someone had a comparison and could put
it on the wiki.

I spent some time poking around on the wiki before I decided to write my
scripts in javascript. If I had seen any warnings on
scalability/performance, especially with good data to back it up, I probably
would have chosen something else.
