Hi,

We need to consider the next steps. For instance:

- in addition to registers, also support lccode/uccode/etc access
- provide a \luaesc primitive that escapes characters, which makes it
possible to say for instance \lua{str = "\luaesc{#1}"} with #1 containing "
- provide access to the hash, i.e. tex.hash["whatever"] = "some text" as
well as str = tex.hash["whatever"]

we need to figure out a clean way to use variables like pagegoal, maybe
just tex.pagegoal

- consider the luapdftex variant to use omega like registers instead of
etex sparse arrays

just a start -)

Hans
