FYI: We have done 0.74 tests with context so it works ok but this time 
the beta was not yet pushed to the garden. Also, just popping luatex 
0.74 into the stable texlive tree is not that good an idea if stability 
is important.

The 0.74+ versions are more a prelude to texlive 2014 esp as there are 
some fixes coming that can also influence compatibility. Afaik, context 
in texlive is the 'current' and not the 'beta' (Mojca has to correct me 
if I'm wrong).
