    Motivation: The number of Lua 5.1 compat hacks is increasing. Supporting 3-4 different Lua versions isn't going to be sustainable. List of issues (add more in comments): * _G.unpack vs table.unpack (see everywhere) * xpcall takes no arguments for the function (reason for util.compat/.xpcall) * math.log missing the 'base' argument (see util.human.units) * __len meta-method does not work on tables (see #1598) * Missing luaL_buffinitsize (see https://hg.prosody.im/trunk/rev/712b2e6a09d9 )
