problem is luasocket is used by lot of thing that are for now only lua-5.1
compatible beside lua 5.1 not being supported for a while and the important one
is prosody, so I guess until prosody gets to lua 5.2 it has to stay lua 5.1 only
so mod_lua should use lua 5.1

That said I tried to cleanup a bit the lua situation but I guess I failed,
framework and installation a imho better but for end user it is still messy.
The bad thing is I'm alone on lua@ and I have no time for it, I'm planning to
kill the lua team which is not a real team anyway and leave lua to people
motivated with more time.
