Yep, that's what I have been thinking here too.

May I suggest something slightly different?

1) Keep _VERSION as "5.1"

2) Use a revision number or a build number _BUILD,
this number increments by 1 every time the Lua team publishes Lua for
the named version. (A bit like MS build numbers). So the number for Lua
5.1 would be about 15 by now (rough guess).

This keeps the version clean and allows fine grained identification of
the code in use.
