Just take a look at mult-def.lua and you will see that there is already
a persian interface ... defining commands in any language is possible
already right from the start of mkiv.

Anyhow, I just tested it and found out that in the process of adapting
code to some new luatex functionality I didn't set some catcodes right,
so you need the beta that I uploaded a minute ago.

Attached is a file from the test suite.
