LuaJIT will only JIT code for a limited number of architectures (x86 and
ARM). Second, LuaJIT is still Lua 5.1 with some additions that make it
close to Lua 5.2 without being Lua 5.2; Lua 5.3 is the current version of
standard Lua. The major differences are how modules are coded (drastically
changed from Lua 5.1 to 5.2) and 64-bit integer support (Lua 5.3).
