New versions of Lua are released so rarely (which also is a good
thing), that, IMO, we better have *any* changes right now — any other
options are close to never having a change.

After all, noone is forcing anyone to switch to newer version of Lua
"right now". I hope that Lua 5.1 and 5.2 would peacefully coexist on
the same machine.
