Yes, precisely.

I suggest you add #!/usr/bin/env texlua to the beginning of the script, so that
under Unix we can just symlink it in the bin directory, just as we do we other
script. If it works this way under Unix, then thanks to Tomek's magic it will
Just Work® on Windows too (the only limitation is that arg[0] won't have the
same value as in the Unix case, hence the use of --sys instead of arg[0]-based

We're using texlua as our Lua interpreter, so no problem here.
