The one Lua-based project I have which really doesn't play nicely with multiple
lua versions simply refuses to work if the version is not the one it is written
Operating systems which blithely jump forwards from 5.1 to 5.2 to 5.3 without
providing co-installability for those projects which have not been brought
forward should be larted until they behave properly.
