Hi Hans,

yes, I'm aware that this procedure is quite silly for this example, this 
was just for myself, for educational purposes. As soon as the setup 
becomes more complex, I thought it might be easier to collect and 
process the options in lua than in tex (as I have done before), but I'm 
running against a wall here (see my exchange with Peter about goat milk 
yesterday). So the real question is: how can I collect data such as an 
attribute value to process it with lua, say in the form

    if lxml.att(t, "frame") == "on" then
       context("Yes, the frame is really on!")
       context("Nope, sorry, it's still off.")

I don't really understand what kind of object a call such as lxml.att(t, 
"frame") produces.

All best
