When you mentioned Lua 5.2, I googled a little bit.  I found


See item 19.  I don't know how relevant it is, it's at least not the
official site.  I suppose that this page is about things which were

On the other hand, "deprecated" and "removed" are still two different
things.  There's no reason to be frightened.
