Sorry, I should know since a few years that my jokes aren't
(I tend to joke with my father about details of grammar and
constantly quote lyrics of unknown songs...)

Would be cool!
I'm working occasionally on a songbook that contains a Russian song,
and I'd like to print the original text in cyrillic (even if I can
hardly read it).
I've everything in UTF-8, so it would be great if ConTeXt could
change the font automatically or language-dependent.
I still didn't try anything with that, though, maybe it's easy - the
base font is Century Schoolbook (because that's LilyPond's default
font and it works well for a songbook), and if I use XeTeX/luaTeX
with TeXGyre Schola, it should just work. (Or don't you think?)
Ok, maybe I don't even need virtual font collections...
