[luatex] Luatex replacement for the babel package

The babel package does several useful things like adapting important
words like “chapter” and “table” and the date and hyphenation patterns
to different languages. But it also has several problems with LuaTeX.
With many languages it makes " active, interfering with lua strings. And
for some languages like Greek and Russian it simply does not work.

It should be easy to reimplement the useful features of babel so that
they work in LuaTeX, even for non-Latin script languages. Is there
already a macro package that does that?
