Being 'Vista' is better than being 'Millenium' :-)

Um. If I remember correctly, when the first work-version of 5.2 was
published, you said something about keeping 5.1 and 5.2 in parallel.

If there would be luajit2-5.1 and luajit2-5.2 targets, there will be
no breaking changes.

I'm really worried about LuaJIT 2 "5.1" straying further and further
away from the "language standard". I really don't want to see LuaJIT 2
as a Lua dialect. This will go bad for sure.

Please, keep 5.1 and 5.2 features separate.
