Nice :)

Hmm, I deleted the old luatextra folder and then unzipped into texmf.
ran mktexlsr. This crashes upon document compilation:

This tag seems to be from before the split? At least, luaextra is
still in the luatextra (t) branch.

Since you're making non-breaking changes, guess I'll have to wait till
those are finished? No rush, but let me know :)
