Thanks for putting the time into this and for sharing. I haven't tested
it intensively, but the first impression is great. It's good to see
people testing the new (experimental) features of TeXworks.

Yes, that's definitely planned. So far, the Lua implementation is very
experimental and basically just a prove of concept. After the first
official release, we'll brainstorm new development plans for Tw, and Lua
will certainly be in there. Then we'll probably also be drafting a
reasonable API with more properties, methods, etc. so that it gets
really usable. The methods provided so far are only quick hacks to show
that it can be done (as you proved with your scripts ;)).
