Lua has no problem supporting utf-8 file without BOM.
According to POSIX standard, you should *not* add bom to utf-8 file.
So utf-8 with BOM is not a standard file format.
BTW: gnu gcc does not support utf-8+bom source file either.

Is it possible to add utf-8 lua source support in lua 5.2?
Just remove the BOM of the utf-8 lua source file when loading a lua file of string.
I know it is just a little patch, but it would be nice to include this feature in the official lua.
