not really.

The stopper atm is lua-process i think, which seems abandoned from

I had a short look at it 2 months ago but there was use of environments
etc so I think it will need some refactoring to support 5.2.

If we could get rid of Lua 5.1 within close future, then we could
likely ship both 5.1 and 5.2 in the same lua-<module> package. (and
then we'll get lua 5.3...)
