Thanks. I installed it and it works. Witness the examples below.
Will this be installed in next ConTeXt versions? I would be grateful.
One question of naming:
	I think "none" is a better descriptive name then "disable"

\leftaligned{\framed[width=4cm,align=no]{xyz} "no" comes out to the  
\leftaligned{\framed[width=4cm,align=no]{\hfil xyz} "no+hfil" comes  
out in the middle}
\leftaligned{\framed[width=4cm,align=no]{\hfil xyz\hfil} "no+hfil 
+hfil" comes out left of the middle}
\leftaligned{\framed[width=4cm,align=none]{xyz} "none" comes out to  
the left}
\leftaligned{\framed[width=4cm,align=none]{\hfil xyz} "none+hfil"  
comes out to the right}
\leftaligned{\framed[width=4cm,align=none]{\hfil xyz\hfil} "none+hfil 
+hfil" comes out in the middle}
