If two packages provide the same thing, yum will install the one with
the shortest name.  Since the old lua package is still in the
repository and is still providing the symbol, yum will still install
it.

Get the old package removed from the repository.  The maintainer
should edit Extras/FC5Status and request the deletion (or find a
helpful admin on IRC, I suppose).

I wouldn't recommend it, but the lua maintainer could just bump the
release and push a new package; only two versions are kept, so this
would push out the old version.
