An update on this:

I have been working on this in my spare time. The first module I
decided to tackle is luaffifb / luaffi - which provides an 'ffi'
library similar to that in LuaJIT. This has turned out to be more
involved as I am having to fix some issues with this module (see my
other post for details).

The main thing I want to mention is that I decided to support stock
Lua 5.3 too - that is the distro will have a Ravi and a Lua 5.3
output, although naturally I will first test everything with Ravi.
