And this should not be part of llex.c in the first place, it should be part
of lua.c .. It has nothing to do with the lexer, and this is my whole point.
This is a function that releated to the standalone version of lua, not to
the core library. Ofcause it might be easier to code it in the library but
that does not makes it more correct.

My robot lua is ripped and ripped and ripped ....
