not sure what you mean by 'tge engines' but in the case of context it is 
already lua scripts that controls the process of typesetting (I also 
added all kind of related script calls to the typesetting menu as we 
have no generic 'tools' menu); so, with respect to typsetting, the 
current 'call some program or script' is fine (although i'd like to see 
a generic tools menu); extending texworks with lua mostly involves 
extending the editor itself
