That would be fairly pointless, since LuaJIT makes Lua run just as fast ;)

As I understand, there's a really cunning little C header parser in
LuaJIT, sans preprocessor.

All the bits are available (I've used Alien, so that seems like a
place to start) so it's a matter of putting them together. It will
just be rather slow in comparison, which is probably good enough for
most bindings.
