+1 from me too.

It would be nice to have modern, easily parsable (for whatever automation) configuration file

For the ts-lua plugin, we’ll continue to support this (of course), but it will require an
externally provided LuaJIT distribution. We already have the —with-luajit configure option,
and we’ll expand on that to auto-detect system level LuaJIT availability.
