Oh, I was more referring to new problems with LuaTeX; most of its new 
primitives (that I've seen) seem rather esoteric in terms of clashing 
with existing code.

Wondering if Karl's legitimate complaints are based on real problems 
already or expected problems down the road (I suspect the latter).

I don't have a strong opinion either way but, well, I guess I'm 
optimistic enough to expect that any code that breaks can be easily 
fixed. (E.g., \let\attribute\relax.)
