That’s a great thing and I’d love to have this kind of package. But one
question: Would it contain updated binaries, too? I would do a lot more
of testing and playing around with luaLaTeX, but as the TL binaries of
luaTeX are outdated, I don’t want to mess my system by building luatex
myself. I’d feel much more comfortable using a texlive package for this …
