A while ago I (unscientifically) tested start-up times with lots of
files open, I just re-did this with some 30 Lua files.
On OS X: time open -W --args -e 'quit()'
I get ~8 seconds with Lua, and ~5 seconds with the LuaJIT version.

I think otherwise there won't be much difference (except if you want
to use Lua modules that use LuaJIT's FFI).
