Yes, I think it would be possible. Who would make this decision, and what action would result?

Do other packagers besides Debian have an opinion?

If I may: Lua on Windows names the dll "lua51.dll" or "lua52.dll"

That's easy and makes a lot of sense, to my facile point of view. :)

I believe that you wouldn't need anything special to support this. But, that leads me to suspect that I don't know enough about the issues, so please enlighten me...
