A 'realistic' benchmark is always a good idea. Lua has a conservative
design (which is excellent) and people need to see practical benefits.

But then, we don't expect extreme speed from stock Lua;  luajit will
optimize what appears like slow operations anyway.

People here already understand how to implement such policies without
core modifications, after all.
