Regarding a mime type for bytecode...

Is bytecode portable across all Lua versions, operating systems (and releases), and processors ... or ... will byte code generated on a windows/intel/little endian machine work on an embedded-os/PowerPC/big-endian machine?

From my experience Lua 5.2 bytecode is definitely not portable between 32bit and 64bit architectures and not portable between big and little endian systems.
