Bytecode and \luafunction (which is new) are both on a list of various
'things that need allocators' that I've raised with the rest of the
team, although perhaps I didn't spell this one out.  One of the reasons
we've switched expl3 from using a bytecode-based approach for storing
the Lua version of \pdfstrcmp is that with no allocator we can't
actually be sure that we are doing the 'right' thing using one!
