Lua needs

 Lua is great, but it is missing a few things..

1.  continue                     -- although Lua 5.2 adds goto, which does allow you to simulate this, but I don't see myself using goto..
2.  no ++ or += etc.       -- don't know why this isn't supported, shouldn't be too hard to add with custom pre-compiler
3.  metaprogramming      --Lua just doesn't have any good support for this, have to manipulate strings to accomplish anything
