The intended point is just the one sentence quoted above.

For the first few replies after I posted I was quite sorry I did, since
some people did "bicker about" 5.2 instead of helping to pin down
Clean Lua (which I actually thought was a cool idea, sorry you didn't
seem to like it much late on a Saturday night).

Then came some very enlightening posts by Petite Abeille, David
Manura and Steve Donovan.  I hope your reaction to my post did
not stop you from reading theirs.
