Something like this has been reported before--see the "Plea" written
by someone in .

I was thinking of writing an alternative implementation of bitlib
having the exact same interface but in pure Lua so that one could
transparently choose either the C or Lua implementation.  However, the
prerequisite is that the interface of bitlib be more formally defined
in regards to sign, endianness, portability limits, etc. (which I
haven't examined in detail myself).
