Yes, I'm not saying you should use it. It makes sense to have a FFI
binding and a "normal" C binding. But I am saying it would be nice if
there were not three different C bindings, and if the remaining one had
roughly the same API as the LuaJIT one.

I am not saying you should adopt the API of luajit-nanomsg by the way! If
you have better ideas, it can change.

But eventually having the same API is a huge plus, because you can easily
use one binding or the other depending on which one is available on the
system, because it allows sharing test suites and examples...

I agree, I am a bit hard with it. When we made the LuaJIT binding it was
unstable, now it works better. But it still has severe issues
( - failing assertions etc) that
make me wait to replace the 0MQ I use in production.
