something from scratch, why would you insist on _not_ writing it

I really hope to be able to use Lua for such low-level work.
Of course that would require an efficient, portable and fully
predictable bit ops library. I really hope we won't have to cope with
By the way, not being able to compile to JIT would seriously detract
from the usefulness of the library.
