The FAQ at says:

	1.7 - What do I call software derived from Lua?
	[...] If the syntax and the semantics of the language (that
	is, the parser and the virtual machine) remain the same,
	then the language is still Lua. If you simply add new
	libraries, or even replace the standard Lua libraries with

	different name.
