Thanks for pointing me to that. I just re-read it and tried something
which worked, but it was still not very intuitive :).
This invocation below works and does not give me a Lua error:
$ cat popen.lua
texconfig.kpse_init = false
texconfig.shell_escape = 't'
$ ~/.ufy/luatex --shell-escape --lua=popen.lua "\bye"
no format given, quitting
