 - msgpack_unpack_next C function because LuaJIT doesn't support

   msgpack_unpack_next but it'd be nice to hear from Mike about
   supporting bool in LuaJIT.

I could do that. How do you check whether it turns off JIT?

   Actually, you run a loop only to check whether a table has a
non-array part and how many keys it has in total. Is it feasible to
   implement this functionality in LuaJIT and make it JITable?

I know, it's not efficient. Another way to do it would be to have the
user explicitly mark lists as lists, for instance with a metatable,
and otherwise encode everything as hash tables.

This is one of the many times I have wished Lua had a real list type...
