Ok, that makes sense - thank you.

I have another question - should Lua bytecode generated by Lua Alchemy be compatible across all browsers/platforms (to be run by another instance of Lua Alchemy), or are there still possible endianness compatibility problems? I understand that Lua's function dump relies on the endianness of the machine that's running it on, making it nonportable. From what I know of ActionScript ByteArrays, they do have an "endian" property for reading and writing various number types, but what I don't know is whether this defaults to the native endianness or has a fixed default, or whether this is even relevant in Lua Alchemy's case.
