That brings up a related question about the Lua standard binary

I'm surely not qualified to interpret the configuration subtleties that Mike
pointed out, but would it make sense to think in as providing the
complete source for any use of Lua and in Lua Binaries as the way to
distribute Lua standalone libraries and applications (command line
interpreter or not)?

Both Kepler and Tecgraf will continue to use Lua Binaries for Lua 5.1, but
it would be important to know if more people would be interested in using it
as a binary standard for Lua standalone applications.
