You should look e.g. at the discussions at the french group. The
curiosity is there and in my opinion it will grow fast.  

One should also not forget, that as luatex is now part of TeXLive
Luatex is now usable with LaTeX, and LaTeX makes it much more easier
to play around with luatex and to have some fun with it. There are a
lot of people around which are able to write small packages or
pieces of code which use the new features.
