Yes, I don't dispute that. It's clearly more mature than the original
pdftex. It just doesn't help me right now because I haven't the time to
read a 194 page manual.

My makefile simply invokes pdftex through:
texi2dvi --pdf -I Images --build-dir=$(CACHE) $(MAIN_SOURCE)

If it's as simple as replacing texi2dvi string with luatex, which it
isn't, then I'd do it. I just tried and it got hung up at an interactive
Lua shell, which is not so useful for me.
