Lua is a good choice. Lua's compiler is really light weight and fast. (With some additional patches faster) The second point is, that we can redistribute the 'Raw-cripts' which gets compiled at the client. This Pre-Compiled scripts can be stored again and this speeds up loading next time.
However, a good caching concept should be speedup many things and the amount of needed space for that, isn't very important. (250 Gb HDD's etc...) This additional ~20 MB for Pre-Cached things in a binary format should everyone have :) And this wouldn't have any disadvantages, because we ship all the raw-data too. Mhm, thats all for now, i thought over optimizing wz2100 a lot, but i'll post my ideas later. So...
