the FFI use libffi? There's still a missing feature, though: C
structure layout is quite architecture-specific (especially for
bitfields), so you'd still need some code to cover that.
I also wondered about adding enough introspection to LuaJIT such that you could write a program to generate C bindings from a LuaJIT ffi binding. Not sure how much work would be involved.
