Question Vim9 Script - worth learning?

Vim 9.0, the new version of my favorite text editor has been released.
They replaced the old VimScript with new Vim9 Script, breaking compatibility with older versions of Vim and broke the compatibility with Vi text editor.
I have 2 options:
1. Learn the new Vim9 Script and rewrite my Vim config.
2. Learn Lua programming language, switch from Vim to NeoVim and rewrite my config in Lua.
Which one should I do?

I installed Vim9 on my windows installation and my old config works just fine except one plugin - YouCompleteMe - which seems not to be able to find Python.

From my brief reading of VimScript doc it looks to mostly target plugin creators.

This is in no way exhaustive, I installed Vim9...used my existing config.
Did :PluginInstall to get my vundle plugins installed.
Ran it and did stuff. Works.

You forgot option 3. Learn the standard editor. It hasn't broken compatibility in 50 years. You can use whatever scripting language you like with it.

This thread just reminded me, I said I would upload my ed(1) scripts when this forum gets https. I forgot about that.
