Neat!  Converting Word documents is no fun at all.

BTW, Babel support for Lua isn't very good AFAICT.  I poked around 
ob-lua.el recently and concluded that one problem is that the Lua 
interpreter prints pointers for some data types instead of a 
human-readable form that might be parsed.

All the best,
