% The hard coded goodies in texexec are now external. We also use this
% opportunity to explore mixed tex/lua user interfacing so you will see
% some old and new tricks here that might disappear or become extended.
%
% if users want to add their own ... go ahead but use a different
% namespace:
%
% mtx-context-third-somename.tex
% mtx-context-user-somename.tex
