[NTG-context] French spacing and pdfTeX-1.40

(it's a repost, in case my previous email got lost...)
my attempt to get correct French spacing before punctuation does no more
work with the latest ConTeXt-beta.
Is there now a new method with pdfTeX-1.40 to get automatically the good
spacing (as announced some months ago)?

Today I try it like this (without success):

%%% module t-french.tex %%%

  \defineactivecharacter « {\leftguillemot\,}%        % does not work
  \defineactivecharacter » {\,\rightguillemot}%       % with utf-encoding
%  \defineactivecharacter ; {\,\lettersemicolon}%     % does not work
  \defineactivecharacter ? {\,\letterquestionmark}%   % does not work with
  \defineactivecharacter : {\,\lettercolon}%          % project/product
  \defineactivecharacter ! {\,\letterexclamationmark}}% structure




Greetings, Peter
