JIT compilation is not what the users of LuaJIT want. What they want is performance [1]. Whether it is achieved via JIT or in some other way is of no interest to the majority of the LuaJIT users.

I do not see how the rest of your argument is relevant. Performance is orthogonal to suitability for large scale application development.


[1] FFI is another thing important for some LuaJIT users. But that does not need to be considered as something inherent to JIT compilation.
