[luatex] trunk fixes

Today I compiled luatex from trunk and the bugs with RTL mode are fixed. I
would like to thank Taco and other members of the luatex team from the
bottom of my heart. But the issue that I reported about beamer with Warsaw
theme, still exists, hopefully that will get fixed soon. I just wanted to
ask you something and that is:

"with luatex having RTL tables is quite easy because I could have \pagedir
TRT and automatically tables becomes RTL. but sometimes we actually are
writing LTR and we need to have a section which takes about say 2/3 of the
page and it is RTL. So having \pagedir TRT does not make sense in this case.
Is there any primitive avaliable in LuaTeX that makes tabular RTL? I can do
it with macros like what I have done in XeTeX but I think having a primitive
that makes tabular RTL would help a lot. What do you think?"

Best wishes,
Vafa Khalighi
