This is a work version. All details may change in the final version.

- new _ENV proposal
- generational collector (very experimental)
- light C functions
- order tag methods follow the same rules of other binary operators
- lua_absindex
- \0 in patterns
- empty statement
- options in io.lines

The manual has been updated and most glitches reported in work2 have been fixed.
The complete diffs are available at

All feedback welcome. Thanks.
