Having a built-in could defeat its own purpose, depending on what it
actually has to do. You want to keep the special lua code anyway, so
there could be a lot of going back and forth between C and lua, which
is not the best in terms of efficiency (put mildly). OTOH, I can imagine
a helper function that somehow produces the words & associated language
of a node list, and that may be helpful, I do not know?

Best wishes,
