After I finally managed to download & test a bit, I'm really glad to
tell you that you were wrong this time ;)

Formats are now properly placed under xetex and pdftex subfolders (and
generated when one first compiles a document), so ConTeXt works with
both engines without any problems in the latest TeX Live ;)


(Could ConTeXt be built with slightly more hyphenation patterns in
TeXLive perhaps? Well, I bear a specific one in my head at the moment
... I don't know how it is with other languages.)
