As for the FAQ: for people to read it they have to, at the very least,
realize that PiL 1 is not about current version of the language.

Most don't, in my experience. Despite the text on the front page.
That's why I ask for a warning notice on each page.


P.S. If there is some associated work to do on HTML / PDF side that
Lua team feels the need to outsource, please contact me offlist, we
may be able to sponsor it or do ourselves, gratis.
