I have already converted a small amount of the CTF game code to Lua.
(Approximately 30% of one of the larger files.) From my standpoint, the
project would be quite labor-intensive, but not particularly difficult.

I am excited about the use of a real scripting language for modders, as
it would allow the ability to make changes and have them manifested in
real time without compilation or even reloading the quake 2 executable.
