This appears  to be a good solution.  So, we will stay  with the patch
and start our development with Lua-4.0.1,  and I am quite sure that it
will be easy then to switch to Lua-5.x if it will be official. 

As long as 4.0.1 is official, I will keep  the patch on the wiki and
add "will be obsoleted by lua_load in 5.0" as Author's position.
