hm, we cannot come up with all possible examples of usage (running on a 
different is a comparable topic that has come up but is not for the 
engine to handle) ; lua is documented well (arg) and callbacks are 
mentioned in the luatex manual so that's where it ends for us and where 
imagination of the user begins;

there have been plenty of (progress, development, usage) articles and 
presentations over the dev period and beyond and we don't see it as our 
  task to come up with possible (generic) solutions for everything

in principle we are only responsible for usage in context and 
discussions about solution for that happen on other mailing lists

fixing bugs is of course another matter and gets our attention but here 
also the tex live release schedule nowaways determines when somethign 
gets done
