The node-ltp.lua file in ConTeXt has this alternative paragraph breaker in lua.

The code in there was originally written by me, but then modified quite a bit
by Hans: he adapted it for use in ConTeXt as well as improved the structure
to make better advantage of the lua programming language. As I wrote on
SX, use within ConTeXt should be simple:

  This is a sample paragraph .... 

but the code is bit outdated (has bugs right now). It is connected to ConTeXt,
but mostly in the diagnostics code, not in its code functionality. Whether Hans
wants to create an agnostic version, I do not know, but it would not hurt to ask.

Best wishes,
