[luatex] \latelua

Hello all,

I'm trying to understand exactly what \latelua does. I was mainly trying
to follow the expansion behaviour, cf. \directlua, but that at least
seems clear. However, I'm not really sure where the code gets executed.
With the example

    \par\vfill\penalty-10000 %

the text "late" is inserted into the second page after "Second" but
before "direct", while if I omit the \directlua call on page two "late"
vanishes entirely. The manual does not give a lot away: is there a good
explanation/set of demos somewhere?
