The Lua authors have not been shy in breaking old code in 5.x releases. setfenv went away without deprecation (which is fine with me.) 

I would like a manual documenting everything in my Lua executable; if writing "DEPRECATED" and/or "WILL BE REMOVED IN 5.3" or "requires -DCOMPAT" does not catch people's attention, using a CSS style could. (dark grey text on a light grey background, who knows)
