I tried patching the above with the following...

        local angle   = f_a(tonumber(s.angle) or 0)

...and the Lua compiler does appear to consume that line successfully,
but a new error I cannot decipher creeps up...

That also appears to be buried deep inside Hans' math routines. I can't
figure out exactly what he is trying to do, but it looks as though it
has something to do with calculating correct values for fonts.
