I don't think this will buy you anything except complications for
complications sake. If you have parts of it compiled into bytecode, why not
have the entire thing in bytecode? I mean, it's the output of luac---it's
all there anyway.
Could you give an example of where this injection of bytecode into the
source code would go? How does the selection of what is processed be made?
