Yes, you just need to get the package removed from unstable, following:

Looks good to me, even if the changelog could be a bit more descriptive
WRT the changes for the removal; I'd suggest mentioning the package
removed from build-deps, the package dropped from depends, and that all
luajit occurrences were removed from debian/rules. That would make the
reviewer more confident about the diff. ;) [ I am currently, but if
somebody else ends up reviewing it, that means a bit of time figuring
out all changes were intended. ]
