Provided Lapis is built on top of OpenResty, which is a large
framework itself built on top of Nginx, it seems unlikely, unless you
port the OpenResty API to lighty.

I don't know if it is possible, and if it is it will be non-trivial to do.

Why don't you want to switch? AFAIK, they are both in the same ball
park regarding performance and memory usage.
