Your right. I would say to use just lua.dll, if lua was backwards
compatable.  And once you start using a number, you need to keep using it,
and then you can't update the dll with a new version as easly (without
renaming it).  Also I think the apendation of things like lib and dll, are
simply rendundancies that really don't have any meaning. However,
appendations such as 'd" for debug and "mfc" for dlls that included the
dynamic-mfc-linking, are approariate.
