But that is great! I'm sorry, like I said, I have not looked closely
on the project. I should now.

Is there some guide on how may I switch in my C++ project (not related
to Alchemy) from Lua to Lua-LLVM?

It *looks* like Alchemy uses normal LLVM pipeline, so it should be
possible to trick it to use our LLVM-IR. This is definitely worth
