What options do we have to reduce the size of the Lua.  We do not need
many of the newish language features.  I notice a steady progression of
complexity since the earlier releases (Coroutines and such).  Can we
remove them?

Things definitely seem to be getting more complex alright...

How about having a look at Lua 4? I'm not sure if it's actually smaller, but... it doesn't contain all the newer stuff [;-)].

Also, I remember the parser could be decoupled in earlier versions. Not sure if that's still the case, though. I've never done this myself. You'd have to rely on precompiled scripts, for this option to be viable.
