Depending on LuaJIT _specific_ features like FFI significantly impacts
portability, so it's not a decision to take lightly.  [The Lua "port"
of FFI isn't much of a workaround either -- it's not "portable" in the
sense Lua is -- and of course does not share the performance
advantages of LuaJIT+FFI (in fact, I'd guess it probably _degrades_
performance compared to more traditional techniques).]
