Unfortunately, hex floating-point literals are handled by 'strtod',
and 'strtod' supports them only in C99, while Lua assumes a C89
compiler. Specifically, Microsoft's 'strtod' does not support them :(
So, hex floating-point literals is a kind of "bonus" feature that
you get when using a C99 compiler.
