[dev-context] Typos in the LuaMetaTeX Manual

The following typos in the LuaMetaTeX Manual are from an about one week
old ConTeXt LMTX (http://www.pragma-ade.nl/install.htm). In the future I
will be more timely, as stated in the previous mail.

A problem of not having an official repository for LMTX is: If I see a
typo or problem in a section that I already read in the past, then,
without further lookup, I do not know whether it already is reported or
not. If I had a clone of an official repository and the manual were
build from that, including the continually rebased and not-yet published
fixes, that problem would not exist.

I will try to deal gracefully with that problem. Depending on the
problem, time, and mood, I will check for duplicates, completely ignore
the typo/problem, or report the same issue more than once.

"have are" in "All options are accepted but only some have are
understood by"

Missing closing parenthesis in "LUAs tostring function (and
string.format may return values in scientific notation"

"This mainly means that lpeg.S cannot be used with UTF 8 characters
encoded in more than two bytes": I do not know any details of LPeg. But
from a glance I suspect that "more than two bytes" should be something
like "more than one byte" in that sentence.

"There are all kind of subtle differences in the implementation": "kind"
instead of "kinds".

"Of course, of you use low level features": "of" instead of "if".

"more of less long term stable": "of" instead of "or".

"In chapter 5 we discussed some new primitives, here we will cover most
of the adapted ones.": This sentence appears in chapter 3. So either "5"
is wrong, or "discussed" should be "discuss".

"The documentation, which is actually comes".

"See chapter ?? for many small changes related to paragraph building".
