[RFC] Update bundled Lua to 5.2.3

Hi, List,

I just checked in a script that can check for newer versions of some of our bundled libraries. Looking for the easiest to integrate, I settled on upgrading Lua from 5.2.2 to 5.2.3. This is a bugfix release, drops in place easily and compiles cleanly. I haven't done extensive testing yet, which is why I'm writing to the list.

Please take a look at the attached patch and try it out. Let me know if there are any problems, or if you have any other concerns regarding this upgrade.

Dan
