Probably not yet. While there is a "session-loaded" hook to call Lua
scripts it's a chicken/egg in this case. Scripts are not part of
session-templates either.

UI integration is still incomplete. So far Lua can use the same methods
as the UI, but controlling the UI itself is currently limited to calling
existing bindings.

Launch `Ardour5 -b` to list available GUI bindings. A Lua example is

   Editor:access_action ("Transport", "ToggleRoll")
