this can already be done (just install with the --engine=luatex flag)

the main issue is that mtxrun also replaces the ruby texmfstart script 
and texexec is launched via mtxrun; so mtxrun needs to be able to deal 
with mkii situations where kpse is used for lookups later on; as the 
installer uses the --tree option, and as mkiv has an abstract notion of 
the texroot, some hoops have to be jumped through to get it working for 
both machineries
