Wow, cool. I tried it out with an LPEG-based program, not expecting much
improvement since the code is heavy on IO and calls back and forth between
C and Lua a lot.
When run with an empty input file (and the -n option to stop it
re-downloading the RIR stats files) the program runs in about 4s with lua
and 2.5s with luajit2 (37% faster). The bulk of this time is a fairly
tight loop which it looks like LJ handles well.
When run with a 900MB input file, lua runs in about 23s and luajit2 in
about 17s (25% faster). This is remarkable, since the loop is not
JIT-friendly, and it hits an NYI case.
