[Dev-luatex] os.exec and waiting for process

Dear Taco, dear all,

Reinhard Kotucha wrote a support script in texlua but there is a strange
thing:
	os.exec(...)
does not wait for the process to terminate.

Now my question is: Is there any way to do that, i.e., to call a
different program and wait for it to terminate, resembling the perl
'system' call.

Thanks a lot and all the best 

Norbert
