I was playing around with a script, some observations. Some Context 
files do not compile, I will make a list of them and see how they can 
be corrected. The new mkii and mkiv means that the script needs to be 
more intelligent than a simple

for FILE in *.*
   texmfstart texexec --module $FILE ;

If the file ends in mkii, you need to add --result $FILE-mkii.pdf (or 
something like that)

Wasn't there a project somewhere with the compiled pdf of all sources?
