I looked at the added code and wondered how exactly it's supposed to
work. Or more specifically: when is code evaluated.

Does Asterisk include a lua interpreter?

It seems that lua needs to be used at dialplan loading time using #exec .
Are there any plans of making the lua support include the "compiler" as
well (like the current AEL code does)?

Can anybody spare a few words on why lua was used? I'm generally not
well-familiar with it so I wonder where it may be much more useful that
conventional Asterisk dialplan (and AEL) and also what are its
limitations and its overhead.
