Nice work! Two questions:
1 - what would sponsorship to another platform cost? your rate x how
long it takes?
2 - when I run the gtk sample, I get:
luajit: luajit_ffi_gtk_demo.lua:67: cannot convert 'function' to 'int (*)()'
[C]: in function 'cast'
luajit_ffi_gtk_demo.lua:67: in function 'g_signal_connect'
luajit_ffi_gtk_demo.lua:86: in main chunk
I just compiled and ran latest luajit from head? Am I doing something
wrong? (btw, I have gtk3 on my machine so that may be the reason)
