SciTE Lua Extension is modified to load the scripting engine just-in-time when it is first needed, rather than loading it when SciTE starts. This adds a small amount of complexity, but means that you don't pay for the overhead of Lua (which doesn't amount to much, honestly), and more importantly you don't risk the instability of new, experimental code unless you want to. In real terms what this means is a smaller footprint for my 1.58 installer (when that comes out), and easier switching between a stable work environment (with Lua turned off) and playing with the cool, new, but immature Lua scripting hooks.
