The difference with OCaml is that it "feels" more like a compiler; in
particular, you can either generate bytecode output or native code. It might
also be the case that it generally takes longer to compile than the Lua
compiler, as it does more work, although I know from experience that the
bytecode compiler is pretty fast.
