I'm thinking of using lauan instead of sheetrock for my ceiling because of weight considerations. Has anyone tried taping the stuff and how has it worked, or any guesses how (if) it will work?

Why would you be concerned about weight? If you are going over something like plaster use 1/4 inch or 3/8 drywall. Don't use luan. It wont be easy to paint and is A LOT more expensive.
