depends on the situation i guess

one you have it working ok you can wikify this trickery (the lua 
interface is unlikely to change much)

often there is somelist.tobesaved and somelist.collected and the second

so, in a first run that list is empty; also, when you insert a footnote, 
you will need an extra run but that happens automatically
