It's quite popular in some areas, particularly as an embedded scripting 
engine in games.

Having written one substantial program in Lua, I can say it's not a 
great next step, particularly if shell scripting is a good solution to 
the OP's current problems.  Lua is clean and simple, but as a 
replacement for shell...no.  Just, no.

Besides, it isn't in the main CentOS repo.
