Hi folks,

still experimenting on luatex, below is a test file of my own that  
uses the 32 possibilities.
Here is the output with hboxes and vboxes hilighted respectively in  
blue and orange
Before I work on the vertical boxes, could you confirm that it is the  
expected behaviour ?
In particular, I find it very weird that sometimes the text is outside  
the box that contains it.
For example on page 3, the rectangle filled with light blue  
corresponds to "\hbox to 5cm" below
which box direction is "dir_TL_". Inside, we have the "vbox" which box  
direction is "dir_LT_".
