Successful redesigns almost always happen in small steps, maintaining

Thanks for composing this excellent reply. I actually composed one
myself (a much, much shorter one) before going on-line. I combed it
to see what I could salvage out of it but I see that you've got all
the main points.


mc^2 isn't perfect. API in a scripting language poses many
challenges (which you mentioned, and Szabó Gergely too). These are
certainly issues we'll have to think about. It's certainly possible
that people will conclude that mc^2 in its present form is garbage,
but at least it provides us with a path we can work on.

did you just rewrite half of mc

No, it's not a rewrite.

(That's the short answer. The sources (under the 'src/lua' tree) seem
big at first glance, but that's mainly because they have documentation
embedded in them. There are files with just 10% of actual code.)
