Would love it if the scripting language is Lua running on LuaJIT, any
plans for that?

Not unless someone steps forward to do it. The Python scripting is generated using SWIG. If Lua is supported by SWIG than it shouldn't be that difficult for someone who interesting in supporting Lua in KiCad to get it working. If SWIG doesn't support Lua, then the task becomes considerably more complex.

    interest is less though in "recording" them than in "executing"
    them. I have many Python scripts that I developed for use with Eagle
    and its scripting language. I would like to convert them to be used
    within kicad. A macro execution environment may be a nice place to
    use them. I could use them on the raw data files, but sometimes
    being in the running app is more convenient. From my short "playing
    around" with kicad, I suspect the macro environment is still in its
    development stages.
