Apparently Danjou is not happy with metatables as an object-oriented technique. You can read more about it in his 2011 blog (scroll down to "Why not Lua").
Of course with Python you have the obnoxious self parameter, and Java is not functional (pun intended), but what can you do about it. Obvious sentence of the day: no language is perfect, and choosing the right one for a particular job is really hard.
