Well, I would argue that this is a fairly common requirement.
If the authors dont want this in mainstream Lua, maybe adding the
patch to the /etc directory is a way out. I presume this would
add a neglible amount of size to the distro.
I would vote for this patch, the int32 patch, coco and LHFs lposix
being added to the /etc or /patches directory of the Lua distro. If
nothing else it would reduce the number of questions on the list
and increase the chances of Lua being adopted for various projjects.

2^24, and not take the baggage of doubles with you.
A tested patch on this has been sent to the authors; [...]
