Mos of my libraries support this.

This is harder to support or standardize but my libraries use this format:
ascii85 library for Lua 5.1 / Mar 2010
bc library for Lua 5.1 / Apr 2010 / based on GNU bc-1.06
md5 library for Lua 5.1 / Jun 2011 / using OpenSSL 0.9.8
random library for Lua 5.1 / Nov 2010 / using Mersenne Twister
