For Windows, users are able to add DLL modules in TeX Live 2016.
In TeX Live 2017 and later, adding of DLL modules may
become impossible or very difficult due to multiple Lua VMs
problem, since I'll link lua52, luajit, and luaffi statically.
I think this may not be undesirable since DLL modules can
lead to security problems.

If users want to use some DLL in lua(jit)tex, they will be able to do
that with the help of the new (luatex) and the existing (luajittex) ffi
under the --shell-escape option.
