I will do testing with 16-bit compilation and processing and report all problems which I found.
I think so that it is not all problems, it was only problems reported by compiler.

Many thanks for the feedback. It seems there are other issues you are
not reporting. Could you send them as well? We aim at keeping Lua
compatible with 16-bit hardware, but it is hard for us to test that.
(We don't need a patch, just a small report of the problem.)

Thanks again,
