just a note: the mtxrun[.exe] and context[.exe] commands are not really 
wrappers but symlinks to the binary luametatex[.exe]  (i didn't test if 
mtxrun.lua and context.lua can be symlinks but that are to be in the 
same path in order to be seen)

one can actually use the default texmf.cnf if one sets TEXMF or one of 
its companions .. they default to be autoparent which is natural for tds
