LÖVE's source doesn't include Lua's source, and the compiled downloadable
version includes unmodified Lua or LuaJIT. I don't think we'll ever consider
modifying Lua or LuaJIT at the language level since we can provide
everything we need from within the LÖVE API - recent versions of LÖVE can
even be loaded as a library via require or package.loadlib in whatever
(5.1-compatible) Lua interpreter you want to use.
