However, if this is intended to be a programmers macro, maybe you 
should give it a name with @ somewhere. (Otherwise the point of 
renaming the thing diminishes.)

So maybe
  \lua at newattribute
and so on.

Oh wait, this package is supposed to target plain LuaTeX as well, isn't 
it? So maybe using @ isn't the best idea.
