The question I have of the seasoned Lua application authors:
Is the move to 5.2 worth the effort?
	I was surprised how easy was to convert LuaSQL to work with

converting CGILua, since we have a great amount of code based on it.
We plan to switch versions by the end of this month (this schedule is due
to a non-technical reason) and I am really confident it will be harmless.
LuaRocks is helping a lot!
