I think you are kind of glorifing LUA_COMPAT_ALL. LUA_COMPAT_ALL never
meant "keep full compatibility with previous versions". It meant keep
some compatibility with the immediate previous version where possible,
for a loose interpretation of "possible". To expect compatibility just
because this macro is defined is (and has always been) unwise.
