 luatexbase: A compatibility version

 luatexbase v1.0:

 This major change to luatexbase accompanies
 an update to the LaTeX2e kernel (2015/10/01).
 The updated kernel directly supports LuaTeX
 allocations and makes the same ability available
 to plain TeX as ltluatex.sty. The code here
 now provides a back-compatibility layer for
 existing code using existing luatexbase interfaces.

 Authors are encouraged to migrate to direct use
 of LaTeX2e kernel/ltluatex interfaces.

 The code here is now maintained by
 David Carlisle and Joseph Wright, who thank
 Élie Roux, Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard and
 Philipp Gesang for their work on the original
 implementation of luatexbase.

 luatexbase v1.1:

 - More fully support priority selection,
   required for working of ctex package.

 luatexbase v1.2:

 - Another fix for a specific issue!

 luatexbase v1.3:

 - More hotfixes!
