Sure, why shouldn't it be?  If you're actually worried, through it
through something like LuaSrcDiet or one of the other source
compressors; their output is often smaller than luac's anyway.

luac is really only useful if you're running Lua where there is so
little space you can't include the compiler.  It does not solve any
obfuscation or script size problems at all.
