Agreed, and after you've worked through the source to the canonical implementation of Lua, you can level-up by looking into the source of LuaJIT: http://luajit.org/download.html

Both are immensely awesome codebases, but the level-up is perhaps a bit too steep. Going from delightful ANSI C (vanilla Lua) to a lot of assembly + C (LuaJIT's interpreter) and runtime assembly generation (the JIT) is no slight task.
