Also remember that any additional layers of abstraction mean extra code, and Lua is primarily an *embedded* language. Most Lua programs aren't intended to be portable because the author knows exactly the platform that it's going to
run on.

In those instances, the programmer can do exactly what they'd do if their platform didn't support floating point maths - leave a library out because it's not useful. That's no argument for it not to be there in the first place, though.
