Metalua, I believe, outputs bytecode. I haven't had much success with its source output. So, I imagine, without a bytecode translator or a LuaJIT emitter added to Metalua, it isn't possible to use Metalua extensions with LuaJIT.

Just talking out loud. I haven't tried LuaJIT 2 yet, but I am very impressed by the benchmarks.
