I asked this question a couple of days ago, but didn't get any takers. I
don't want to be a pest, but it's frustrating to be so close yet unable
to solve this final problem. Let's see if rephrasing the question helps.

I'm trying to use \doifnumberelse in a \setuplist numbercommand= but it
isn't working.

layout I'm trying to accomplish. You will note that both the chapter
number and the appendix letter are labeled with "Appendix" when in fact
I want the chapter to be labeled "Chapter".

Does anyone know either (a) how to get \doifnumberelse to work in this
situation or (b) if there's a better way I should have done this

\def\mychapterlistnumber#1{\vbox{%
\doifnumberelse{#1}{Chapter}{Appendix} #1\crlf}}
\def\mysectionlistnumber#1{\emspace\emspace}
\def\mysectionlisttext#1{%
\setuplist[chapter][width=1em,numberstyle=bold,%
numbercommand=\mychapterlistnumber,textstyle=bold]
\setuplist[section][width=2em,numbercommand=\mysectionlistnumber,%
textcommand=\mysectionlisttext]

\starttext
\startcolumns[n=2,distance=.3in,balance=no]
\bgroup
\placelist[chapter,section][criterium=all,alternative=b]
\egroup
\stopcolumns
\page
\chapter{Foo}
\section{Bar}
\input knuth
\startappendices
\chapter{Corge}
\section{Grault}
\input zapf
\stopappendices
\stoptext
