I think best overall would be:
lua-50 (if it's still around)
That way, you won't run afoul of systems that use '.' to separate the main
file name from the extension (cough MS-DOS cough), and the name stil fits in
eight characters (cough MS-DOS cough). I doubt we'll get to Lua 51.0 any
time soon ...
