Ah, OK, I missed that.  I imagine it's not such as easy task if it
hasn't been done already so I'll be patient; I don't know anything
about JIT compiler internals.

LuaJIT is looking very, very nice though.  I consider it one of the
best software projects in existence.  For certain algorithms I'm even
calling into LuaJIT so that I can get more performance than what I can
get in C/C++, that's really impressive.

Yes I tried that but it runs even slower than the slow assignment method.
