Bug Description

We'd like to support lua 5.2 in main only, and move away from 5.1. But some upstreams don't yet have support for lua 5.2 yet.

Related: apache bug 1323930 (lua support regression due to failed move to 5.2) and bug 1262710 (in particular comment 25) for discussion of the same issue with nginx, and of having both lua 5.1 and 5.2 in main.

Some discussion with upstream nginx here: https://github.com/openresty/lua-nginx-module/issues/343

"If as you said there are quite a few people already using ngx_lua + lua 5.1, then linking against Lua 5.2 will probably break these people's existing Lua code. Lua 5.2 is essentially an incompatible different language."
