could someone tell me why doesn't Lua have the portable
bytecode? we support x86, amd64, IA64, Sparc 32 and Sparc 64
CPUs, so I have to compile the Lua code for them all. my dream
is only one compilation and new package loader, the loader which
'll be able to load the code from zip file :)

Yours sincerely, Eugeny.
