If your bottleneck is in your C code, LuaJIT will not help you.  It is
not within its scope to optimise any poor code you have, inside or
outside Lua.  It's time to get a profiler out and actually work out why
your code is slow, rather than throwing JITs at it.  It may turn out
you don't need the JIT at all.
