Not to hijack this thread, but since James is discussing some of the
internals I thought it might be interesting to understand why he didn't
re-use the work from a project like libffi?
Was it purely to be LuaJIT compatible or were there other factors?
Thomas ... purely interested, not advocating one approach or another.
