Remember how I was talking about restricted execution, and mentioned that thing "Monte" that doesn't actually exist? Well actually I was trying to refer to Ecru, a new E implementation in C. After being announced to positive reactions on the E mailing list, Allen posted on his blog about Ecru and why he started the project.

I'm excited about this project. E is a language which is specifically designed to solve the types of problems that I want to solve, but Ecru has a long way to go until it gets there. I hope it gets more contributors!

As for Lua: I do think it's feasible for some serious restricted execution work (or at least I think it might be - I haven't really proven it yet), but I'd much prefer Ecru, because E is so much more sensible a language.
