No hurry! I can see that some constituencies really want some things
that will be in Lua 5 that aren't in Lua 4, but for me, Lua 4 is
really good (so I'm happy with what I've got), and Lua 5 looks as
though it could be something really special (so I don't want it spoilt
by being hurried!).
It's a pity that there never was a Lua 4.1, though. Two years between
major releases is a long time.
