That's why Élie's suggestion of maintaining two branches (one for recent LuaTeX,
with ConTeXt code regularly merged in, and one for whatever version of LuaTeX is
in "stable" distros) sounds interesting. The stable branch would either include
only bugfixes, or even be completely frozen to reduce the amount of maintainer work.

Ulrike, what's the situation with LuaTeX on MikTeX? Is it updated regularly, or
only once per MiKTeX version, as in TeX Live ? The underlying question is: is it
worth releasing the unstable version to CTAN for the benefice of MikTeX, or is
LuaTeX too old there too?
