[NTG-context] m-bib module

Hi all,

first I must apologize for delayed (and now induced by Adam too :-)
response. What I have found:

1. startpublication stores data in a stream of data written as is without
any processing. It was my first error -- I use XML and I created publication
full of \XMLops and \XMLflushes, so in the time of usage of the publication
all these macros expanded to empty string. So I have to rewrite XML handler

2. if I used simply \placepublications (or \placelist[pubs]) I got nothing.
And after some tracing I found that I did not set criterium=something. After
correcting this, publications appeared correctly. I did not continue to
check code after this success, but it seems to me the criterium parameter is
NOT set for publication list by default. My mistake was I did not trust the
bib module documentation, as I expected (myself :-) it is a good habit in
the ConTeXt to set defaults of parameters to the values which allow user for
the first hit catch reasonable output.

So maybe this helps,

have a nice day,
