I made a change to the standard place about a month ago but Antti
objected and I rolled it back. We discussed it on source-changes-d.

If my understaning is correct, Antti would like to see a generic
interface that handles other related things like W^X protection.
In the end we agreed on creating a private component.

Yes, sljit is the only place that generate code on the fly. Other
executable code is handled by rt-linker.
