indeed, but since we're discussing asymptote support it makes sense to 
see how we do it as convenient as possible (for instance i can imagine 
that graphics made that wat somehow need to match the parent doc and so)

as a side effect, "context --global m-asymp" with m-asymp being an empty 
file or one defining a few helpers would automatically enter scroll mode
