I forgot to mention: this is the real reason why we absolutely
need to standardize on the name and the contents of the Lua DLL(s)
for Windows. Otherwise noone can safely distribute binary modules
for Lua on Windows.

Both David Burgess and I have suggested to merge the Lua core and the
Lua core library into a single DLL. I have suggested to name it
'lua51.dll' (for Lua 5.1).
