[lltx] paragraph breaking in lua (node-ltp)

I'm very much interested in playing around with variations of Knuth's 
paragraph breaking algorithm.

I recently learned that Taco (I think) did a full reimplementation in 
lua that would be perfect for me to do a few experiments.

Unfortunately I'm unable to to make this work e.g., produce a short TeX 
file that actually uses the code. Anybody out there who could give a 
helping hand?

meteorically I think such code should work with any flavor of TeX (eg 
plain) but if there are some reasons that right now it is only possible 
to use it with a very specific environment that doesn't matter for what 
I'm trying to do ... all I need is something that I can feed paragraph 
examples to.
