Embedding byte code is a deployment strategy, not essential.
This is true, but it is a good strategy. The byte code reading is FAR faster, and for environments where we're scraping to get every bit of memory that we can, being able to dump the Lua parser is a win.

I really wish LuaJIT provided a bytecode format, but I don't wish it hard enough (yet) to pony up cash for Mike to make it happen. :)
