Can you add support for filtering the results? That is,

context --modules plot

should retun the help file of all modules that have "plot" in their 
filename (or if it is not too expensive, have plot in their description).

Also, some of this information is also part of \module[...] header in the 
beginning. Is it possible to merge the two? That is, can I just write:

%I title: ....
%I author: ....
%I email: ....
%I version: ...
%I license: ...
%I copyright: ...
%I comment: ...
%I status: ...

Then, if I run

context --modules filter

I will see the above information, and if I run

mtxrun --script modules --process t-filter.tex

the above info will be converted to


at the top of the ted file.
