Please note PHP is also successful in web development. And NodeJS is v8 
which is JIT. So, to sum up, none of that really means anything. I was mostly 
only countering your argument that Lua should stay and be niche / scripting 
small stuff. That part is something I strongly disagree. People will look for tools
they feel comfortable with when no criteria is critical, and they will look for 
performance when that is critical for their application.

Sure, but is a JIT needed for this? Neither Python or Ruby have JIT
technology and Ruby is certainly successful in the web development
