But who's duty is to resolve the issue?
It's clearly not an issue of Lua as a language. It's just a consequence
of (a very popular) LuaBinaries once releasing lua5.1.dll that became a
de facto binary standard, then authors of many third-party Lua libraries
were releasing binary packages compatible with LuaBinaries.
Note: I'm not blaming LuaBinaries; that was just one unfortunate
decision that is difficult to be undone.
