That is already possible, there is a script in the svn repository that
does exactely that from the minimals. So everything is in place but one
has to actually DO it, we have enough to do with normal TL support and

Right, but also that can be done directly from the minimals using the
script in our repo. It creates a TL repository that can be used
	tlmgr -location ... update --all
and it will update what is there, that can be luatex, context, or the
context modules.

Of course, binaries for luatex are only provided for the archs that are
there in the minimal distribution. If more people compile luatex
binaries for different archs from our tlbuild team we can put them
there. BUt that is not *my* priority.
