Re: [code] [textadept] Poll: LuaJIT Version Users

I liked the potential extensibility when it was introduced but don't use
it ... I guess there are also ways to get similar results via
sub-process commuication with another LuaJIT instance.

If there are people relying on it they will probably complain when it's
removed?

Cheers,
Robert
