no special reason for context; as using synctex makes only makes sense
when you run from an editor, and because then (at least) I don't want to
always use synctex, ways are needed to control it in a different way;
and users can always add \synctex=1 to the document they're working with

once texworks reaches a stable state, i'll look into it in more detail
