If only a minor tweaking is required to make luatex work with generic
Org export, I'd add direct support of luatex to ox-latex.el depending on
the value of org-latex-compiler.

Or we may go even further and make org-latex-compiler default to luatex.
This will benefit all the non-latin language users.
