Sorry for the tardy replies:

Can you use C# instead of Java ;) ?
No, Java is a fixed requirement, so I can't use C#.

Irony aside, I wonder why you need such old version of Lua. You have
lot of old code to run in this environment?
Yes, I am working with a client who has a large application that
relies on Lua 4 features to run. The client has looked into porting it
to Lua 5.x, but it would be a fairly significant effort for no real
gain since it runs quite well as is.
Anyway, I followed up on your suggestion of exploring the commit
history for LuaJava and as best I can tell there is not a compatible
version. After doing a little tinkering, however, the amount of effort
in adapting it to use Lua 4 has been pretty small. So that's the
route I've taken.
As soon as I get finished, I will make available (either hosting
myself or talking to the LuaJava folks) the work I've done on the
non-zero (but infinitesimally small :) chance that somebody else could
make use of it.
