one of the lua Gurus here at Debian checked the embedded libs and found

What do you say? (See attached email, including the diffs between current
upstream of the lua libs and code in texlua).
But what happens then? Luatex becomes dependent on an external library
that may or may not be distributed by debian (or anyone else)?
