Hi, Andrew.

I'd be fine with Lua, but someone has to do the work.

I have another idea: What if I changed the syntax of my proposed if-statement feature to match that of Lua?  It would be way more restrictive than Lua, and I would likely have to chop some things out of it, but Lua would be a superset such that if someone did do the work to switch to Lua at a later time, existing scripts using my proposed if-statement would continue to work in Lua.  Would that make this branch merge more likely?

Thanks,

Lewis
