I maintain a fork of lua (
for our project skynet (
It allows multiple lua VMs to share constant lua objects including
strings, function prototypes (code chunk), and even the read-only

The motivation of the fork is saving the memory when we have thousands
lua VMs in one process (multiple threads), because most of these VMs
would load the same lua code.
I load the lua code in one VM, and share it with other VMs. The first
VM loading code never run after loading code, and everything in it is

I think you can also use it to make a VM (with code and some read-only
table) persistent into ROM, and run a VM in RAM with some sharing data
(strings, code chunks, tables, etc).
