Yes, that is an issue. As was pointed out earlier in this thread,  
'packages' tend to lose support once they're released, so ConTeXt at  
least has a coherent architecture which, gathering from what I've  
read on this list, counteracts that.

Cool, thank you! Another sunday after noon (as in 18 hours from now)
