4.1 is not ready, not even for alpha. No, there is no CVS access.
I think 4.1 alpha will be released sometime around April, but no promises.

This issue is complicated by the absence of platfortms accesible to us that
implement UNICODE and wchar_t. Not even Linux does.
So, it's not in our immediate plans, but we'd like to hear what should be
changed so that we can plan our code for easy change. That would be a very
good topic for a Lua Technical Note.

I'm not familiar with Microsoft's scheme.
