It shouldn't require many changes, but it will require some. The
memory layout of upvalues has changed in 5.1, and there's different
information attached to a lua_State now. I've been waiting until
5.1-final to make the changes, as stuff is still in flux, though it
looks like most of the changes have settled down. There's also a
couple of bugfixes I'm planning to roll into the 5.1 version. Of
course, if you want to contribute some patches to make it run on 5.1,
you'll be my bestest friend.

Surprisingly, it doesn't look like the generational GC will make much
of a difference.
