Hi again,

New version out! 1.1.0 returns a functor instead of a function, and it's got a _VERSION field (which is a version instance on itself).

Thanks for the feedback!

module way of accessing.

Right! I forgot about functors. I don't think I'll include a "newVersion" method though; but I'll transform version into a callable table with a _VERSION field. I'll work on it this evening.
_VERSION uses a format (most common) of name followed by version; eg. 'Lua
5.2', so any utility function should first grab the last part (after the
last space) of the string and then perform comparisons.

Hmm. I don't think semver is the right place to do that. It's supposed to be an implementation of Adding that functionality would make it lose its "focus".

I think that functionality should go in a different lib; "luaversion" or "luamoduleversion" or similar.
