Thank you for the tip!

In fact luaextra is quite short compared to the l-*.lua files of
ConTeXt, it contains only a minimal subset, so I think it can be
loaded all at once, which is not really the case of the l-* files...
What I was thinking was to ship the l-* files and to keep the minimal
luaextra functions, but this will introduce code duplication... so
maybe just shipping the l-* files and make luaextra load some of them
with some modifications (I renamed a thing or two, it's written in the
doc) would be OK... Wdyt?

Thank you,
