- Subject: JIT for Lua

I came across this the other day:
GNU lightning is a library that generates assembly language code at
run-time; it is very fast, making it ideal for Just-In-Time compilers,
and it abstracts over the target CPU, as it exposes to the clients a
standardized RISC instruction set inspired by the MIPS and SPARC chips.
but I haven't tried it at all.
Perhaps this is a nice project for someone, although I wonder whether Lua's
semantics will allow much gain from JIT...
Plus, of course, Lua is already very fast :-)
