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

Yes, of course. It is more of an easthetical doubt: I would have liked to publish it in pure Lua 5.3, but praticality dictates otherwise :-)

By the way, Roberto said something about the (hypotetical,
approximate) release time for 5.3, but I didn't take notes and I
have not been able to find it in the archives...

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

I take note ;-)
