Hi Bruno,

thanks for your email and testing.

> Works here on the Mac.

Good to hear.

> One slight adaptation is required for the GUI TeXShop, which is Mac-specific and selects binaries and formats through an Engines submenu. The default definition file LuaLaTeX.engine contains

Ok, I have no idea about TeXShop etc as I don't use OSX (only the hardware ;-)

> Same for the cross-platform TeXworks, which uses "processing tools". You need to either define a new tool in its Preferences interface

Yes, that is true, of course.

> Shouldn't pdfcsplain be included too? I've no idea why, nor did I ever use csplain, but it's in texmf-var/web2c/luatex and fmtutil.cnf contains

Can be done, but I don't see much need for that ;-)

> Regarding mac universal binaries: I don't think that's cause for concern:

Good to know, thanks.

> In any case, looking yesterday at <http://www.tug.org/texlive/> I realized tl2017-pretest should start soon (next month), so all this will become secondary by then.

Yes indeed, but still, one reason I did it was to show how all this
can easily be done with on-board methods. No trickery here, just
use the cmd line options.
(Besides the fmtutil trickery, though ;-)

Furthermore, after TL2017 there will be for sure new version of
luatex etc that people want to test, and having a nice
setup already allows for this, without any adjustments (hopefully).

All the best
