Not that it's worth a discussion. The Lua authors should be free to use any coding style they wish. I'm just happy that Lua 5 is making progress --- Thanks!

Why would you want to decrease the readability of the code,

Because, unfortunately, several compilers use those common
names (such as "size", "level", "index") for different
purposes in their own include files, and those uses generate
warnings (and sometimes errors) when mixed with lua.h.

That makes sense.  I should have thought of that.
