I can well understand the need for flexibility in the Lua bytecode and dump
formats. Would it be unreasonable to ask for a change log that listed
differences from one release to the next so that people maintaining tools
that work at the bytecode level wouldn't need to go hunting for why their
tool no longer works?

On the other hand, for tools like lint, having a Lua parser available would
probably be a better way to achieve the goals rather than trying to glean
semantic information by reading the bytecodes.
