Is there a reason why Lua engine's version is not clearly (for the machine) available in a constant s.a.

LUA_VER= 5.104

This would be useful for scripts that intend to be version independent. Now, they need to parse '_VERSION' ("Lua 5.1 (work4)") and there's no guarantee the format of that will remain as is?
