This is now possible. So you can (for example) write

\setupcolors [state=start]
\framed [background=color,
         offset=1cm ]{hello world!}

and guess what happens: it will display a black frame with green
content and "hello world!" centered in it.

I have not looked closely at latexrenderer though.
