Hans, I fully agree.  This "fancy shifting" is ridiculous, of course.
But it's actually unavoidable because it was introduced by Knuth and
we all know that Knuth is infallible. IMO it's (more than) sufficient
if "Lua\TeX" contains "\TeX".

In order to avoid endless discussions I think that Taco should decide
and carve his decision in stone.
