In my oppinion, several changes to adapt code to Lua 5.3 could be
considered improvements even without thinking about Lua 5.3 (e.g.,
string.formating numbers with a proper numeric format instead of "%s",
using "1.0" instead of "1" when dealing with floating-point
computations, avoiding implicit coercions). But that is much about taste.

Not at all.
