'python3' is also Python 3. And yes, the way Arch Linux handled the
transition to Python 3 is probably the best reference you have.

In my opinion scripts distributed in packages should always use
a specific version of the interpreter. The level of specificity is the
one at which APIs break, so for Lua 'lua51' or 'lua5.1' should be OK.

I have no idea how you can make the distinction for LUA_PATH / LUA_CPATH
though. This might be a problem.

On a side note, I do not think it is a good idea to make the 'lua'
binary call Lua 5.2 before its final release...
