I think I want the opposite.  The documentation for \setupfloats at
<http://texshow.contextgarden.net/> says

  New option:
  numbering           yes nocheck (default yes)
    nocheck causes no renumbering so it preserves figure's source order

My problem was that the source order (which is the order of first
reference, probably) is not the order on the page.  The wide figure
floats to the top of the page (because it's wide) even though its
source position is later than the narrower figure that fits in the

So 'numbering=yes' will number according to position on the page?
