Hi Luigi,
it's an interesting idea, though.  I think that it's worthwhile to
investigate.  \setbox and \vbox are primitives and the easiest way is
to invoke them by their names (in TeX), of course.  At a first glance
it doesn't make much sense to replace them by Lua code.  But once all
the low-level stuff is hidden in Lua functions, the whole thing
becomes extremely interesting.  I'm quite interested in the results.

Nevertheless, no catcodes, no fun.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
