That is good to hear. I know that the ARM prevails in a good slice
of the embedded market, so maybe that is something that the standard
Lua distribution should cater for. There has been some discussion about
RISC OS broadening its horizons to embrace the elf binary format (see

more into line with the rest of the world, even some binary
compatibility maybe?
