By beating Fortran in few instances and coming reasonably close to
C/C++ performance on numerics LuaJIT-2 is becoming a viable candidate
for heavy number crunching applications.
How difficult it is to add native Complex numbers to LuaJIT (C-99 compatible)?
By native I mean as little overhead over lua_Number as possible.
