Hello John,
if I understand it right, the hyphenation problem is related to the font:
to get correct hyphenation, the accented characters have to be in the font,
as they are in Latin Modern or EC. In CM the é is a composition of an e and
the accent.
* Latin Modern: works out of the box with the latest ConTeXt, but is still
  in development, the kerning for example has to be improved (see
  It's a PS Type 1 font.
* EC: seems to be difficult to support with ConTeXt, but I'll try it.
  It's a MetaFont font (bitmap).

It's not in the manual, but it seems that \useregime does nothing, it only
pre-loads a "regime" to make it available for an \enableregime
command. Since there is already a "\useregime[def,uni,ibm,win,il1,mac]" in
regi-ini.tex, you'll need an extra \useregime only for other regimes.
