See .

I don't think the core code increased much lately. If anything, it is 
probably smaller... (Even with all those new language features)
Now, the libraries is another matter. 

In Lua 5.1, the core will even be smaller, because Lua 5.1 needs less from the
C library.

Bottom line: it all depends on which libraries you need.

If you post more details about your needs, then perhaps we can suggest more
concrete ways.
