The review team will be ok if you switch the interpreter from to

Would it be ok to just switch all build sections to use lua? Probably much
faster than the shells anyway :-P

How much time is spent executing the spec files, anyway?

Who would write those lua scripts? There is quite a disproportion
between the number of people who understand shell and the number of
people who understand lua.

I can concur: shell has so many oddities over lua (think = vs == and [
vs [[) and people don't seem to understand them, it's why they mix it up
in e.g. the build recipes. ;-)
