heh. appearance of LuaJIT 2 raises question of adding goto statements
to Lua in order to use it as intermediate language. i personally
interested in fast protected VM for C/C++ code and JIT2 is an
interesting option

well, at least JIT fornt-end may support it as Lua extension
targeted exclusively for automatic code generators
