I was wondering whether there is a possibility to use '(new)texexec' with
THREE input files: one describing the XML/ConTeXt mappings, one taking care
of document specific ConTeXt stuff (formating) and one for the XML itself?
Would make the 'mappings' file more portable ...

Thank you very much for this - I have entries in my TOC now. However, the
page numbers for my sections show up in the margins ... is this a bug? How
would I fix that?

This sounds really great ... but Debian unstable doesn't contain this file
yet - 'texexec --version' gets me:
 TeXExec 5.2.4 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005

               texexec : TeXExec 5.2.4 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005
               texutil : TeXUtil 9.0.0 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1992-2004
                   tex : pdfeTeX, 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
               context : ver: 2005.01.31
               cont-en : ver: 2005.01.31  fmt: 2006.3.24  mes: english

        total run time : 1 seconds

I'm hesitant to leave debian for this at this point - need all the time a
can get for this document - will the 'newtexexec' script just work with any
ole' ConTeXt install?
