It is not difficult to implement bit32 in pure Lua 5.3. (The test file
'bitwise.lua' has such an implementation.) It is easy to provide that
(or a C equivalent) as an external library. In 5.2, require'bit32'
will automatically use the internal version.

I do not remember saying anything about that (and I did not take notes,
either :).
