Bug Description

in the past we have tried to move 5.1->5.2 (bug 1324062) but right now we have:
For older Lua versions being held in main I found:
- apache2-bin depends on lua5.2
- dovecot depends depends on lua5.3
And a request for lua5.4 in bug 1909665.

Step I:

I'd request to check if we can:
- at least move apache2 to lua5.3 to be able to demote lua5.2 in Hirsute
- [1] suggests that 5.3 might work right away

Step II:

Further down the road I'd request to check and work on moving dovecot+apache2 to lua5.4 (unless it turns out impossible). Then we could completely move to 5.4 and demote 5.3 as well.
And we could make ibus-libpinyin a sync again then (see bug 1909665).

I verified that apache2 builds fine against lua5.3 and filed [1] in Debian. This is similar to [2] and the apache2 maintainers promptly bumped the build-dep back then.

(I also verified that apache2 does *not* build against lua5.4)
