Right, but I don't like writing code that I know it soon will be
obsoleted, and I was under the assumption that it is going to be fixed
for texlive2010, which, for the best of my knowledge, not released yet.

I never claimed luaofload is bug free, or even working at all, the only
reason it was uploaded to CTAN is for more people to test it. If I'm
supposed to test everything, or anything at all, then I don't think it
is going to be released, ever. (hint, STIX 1.0.0 :)
