  * summary:  Lua-5.1.1 => Lua-5.1.3

Comment:

 I didn't realized until now, that we've had a ticket about one of the
 simplest and fastest scripting object oriented languages.
 Anyway, current version is 5.1.3.

 By the way. If someone is looking for a programming language for a package
 management implementation, Lua and Python are possible the best suited for
 that job, but Lua binary with the possible addition of the Luasocket
 module for network support is 200+ kb.

 Sorry for this academic post in Track, but I thought I could drop a note
 to encourage people to have a look in that small jewel. Hopefully someone
 can pick it up and add it in the book, I wish I had the time to do it
 myself.
