Why not use MetaPost?  With all of ConTeXt's features for doing in-document 
MetaPost code, this would be the perfect solution for your problem.  Have a 
look at Hans's MetaFUN manual for a good starting point on using it.

Also, I believe the original MetaPost manual has some examples of figures 
very much like the ones that you want to draw.
