%D Around the \CONTEXT\ 2018 meeting I had a preliminary backend written in \LUA\ as
%D alternative for the hard coded variant (we're talking of the font embedding and
%D page stream output, the part we still used). Therefore there is a pluggable
%D output driver. But \unknown\ I decided not to waste time on supporting both
%D \LUATEX\ and the new kid \LUAMETATEX, also because in practice \LUATEX\ would be
%D used as benchmark, using the more traditional approach. So, the code in the
%D driver modules is mostly a kind of simple placeholder now and although I could
%D simplify it ther eis no real reason for it. It is no problem to getit all working
%D well in normal \LUATEX, it's just that we don't need it there.
