lua vs luajit vs both

What reasons do we have for supporting lua at all? Why not just go
with luajit? It's faster and just as widely supported. The motivation
for not supporting vanilla lua is this luajit library: . This would be a nice way of being
able to ship scripts without a big comment in the header "you need to
have the luacrypto package installed for this to work", and similar.
Currently, the tree supports both lua and luajit, but I'm tempted to
chop this down to just luajit. Thoughts on this?
