I'm pondering if this is okay to make it into a "bugfix" release:

  - the documented behaviour is closer to the new behaviour than the
current behaviour
  - luajit embeds it's own strtod that doesn't care about the locale;
and hence has the proposed behaviour already.
  - fix existing code that is currently broken in non-C locales

  - lua will have a new deficiency: no way to parse a number in the
current locale.
  - could break existing code
