Also, if your goal is speed, its probably not worth it, lua source is
compiled when its loaded already, and compilation is fast, so you're
removing a step that is not likely a bottleneck.

If your goal is obfuscation, you might consider whether its worth it,
its already reasonably hard to pull lua code off a iphone, and the
code minus your runtime probably ain't worth much.

Also, if you want obfuscation, you can just encrypt or compress or
whatever your code, and use with your own
