I consider an implementation of Lua a 'fork' if it doesn't pass the
Lua test suite. Otherwise it is another implementation of Lua, derived
or independent.

By this standard both Ravi and LuaJIT are forks.

Generally speaking successful forks are bad for the eco-system, as
they break it up. However, Lua's model of development being
centralised doesn't support any other approach.
