[NTG-context] getcommalistsize

I wanted to do something with the length of a commalist but found  
that it macro \getcommalistsize does not seem to respond.

Here is a small test:
\def\showcommalistitem#1{item = #1 }

direct call (size=\getcommalistsize[p,q])

item = a item = b item = c item = d item = e
item = 1 item = 2 item = 3
direct call (size=)

As can be seen the macro \getcommalistsize does not give a value  
back, \processcommalist works.
Am I doing something wrong here or understood it wrong?

yours sincerely,
dr. H. van der Meer
