That's why I had to change the limit to 10000 in the type annotated version.

In Lua 5.3, in numeric "for"-loop, if both "initial value" and "step" are integers, then loop variable will have only integer values, even if "limit" is float.
for j = 1, math.pi, 2 do
   print(j, math.type(j))
So, when parsing "for j = 1, 1e4 do", Ravi should conclude that "j" is integer, similar to how Lua 5.3 deduces type of loop variable.
This way there would be no reason to replace 1e4 with 10000
