LuaJIT is an important part of the Lua ecosystem, so as long as it
doesn't support 5.2 that will be enough to dissuade many users from
migrating their code. Though I agree for someone who's happily using
LuaJIT or 5.1 + addons there won't be an obvious killer feature to
encourage an upgrade anyway.
