Hello Karl, Leo, Norbert,
I imagine that some Plain/LaTeX users would like to test LuaLaTeX with
TeX Live. LuaTeX becomes more and more stable.
Using LuaLaTeX with TL09 is very simple, you just have to be careful
with inputenc (use luainputenc instead).
But installing the last version of LuaTeX is a bit more difficult :
-place the binaries at the right place (luatex, dviluatex, lualatex,
dvilualatex, texlua, texluac) ???
-make all new formats
-renew mpost.mem and mpfun.meme files with the luamplib-createmem.lua
script to enable luamplib package to work with lualatex.
And be careful : if you decide to update all packages with tlmgr (and
particularly the luatex package), the version of LuaTeX will come back
to default TL09 LuaTeX version.
So I think it's a good idea to have tlmgr able to update LuaTeX.
