Well, that's fine, I guess. But Hisham and the luarocks people are trying to build a module ecosystem, which is an extremely useful thing for developers to have. That's made a lot more complicated if the modules are either targeted for a particular dialect (which makes using them in arbitrary code a bit of a crap shoot) or have to be compatible across versions - leading to the original problem.
