That is why I believe that we should have some means to share must of
the lower level Lua code across macro packages. For instance writing 2
or 3 OpenType layout modules is a waste of time, is it a big task of its
own especially if you want to cover all scripts, there exists 3 free
OpenType implementations and only one gets it almost right.
