It could be useful to get minor release number for users of embedded
interpreters that don't have access to the C source or executables. It
could be a method in debug package. It's very easy to implement it in C
though, so it may not be necessary to put in Lua itself (as anyway
embedding Lua will already require some work and in many cases involves
adding C functions).
