Has there ever been any discussion about including the tokenf patch and macro support in Lua for FG2?

For example:

In general, I tend to stay away from additional dependencies on top of existing libraries. Otherwise, I am on the hook to update the whole library, if the original maintainer does not and we need to update main library. (Ex: Lua)

Thx for the info, MW. It looks like a solid extension that has been around for a long time that provides some great features. Might be worth considering if/when things come up for revision. I was hoping to the use them to streamline the extension code and didn't realize they weren't supported - but looks cool.
