That would mean that you would call out to lua each time you want to
use one of these motions/objects, if I understand correctly.

Writing a grammar for matching these things in LPeg should be possible.
Do you think it would be worth implementing these motions/text objects in
LPeg? The main advantage I can see with this approach is that you could
create robust grammars for these motions/objects using LPeg instead of
doing some ad-hoc parsing like I did in this patch.
