I appreciate that currently having only one numeric type helps keep
Lua simple, but I fear that on 64-bit machines Lua's number type might
not be able to represent common integer values such as process ids or
file offsets.


Lua does offer the light userdata offset, which is well suited for process ids. Not so for file offsets though..
