[NTG-context] tables and color

Hi,

A while ago Herbert reported problems with color in \starttable and 
Aditya suggested to provide \VL in \starttabulate. Also, there's some 
experimental coloring code in tabulate.

So, I decided to add better color support to tabulate as well as 
vertical lines (for as far as it makes sense). Below you will see how 
the interface works. A side effect is that \NC[color] is no longer 
supported: we need 4 cases instead of one.

Concerning \starttable: I started merging the patches into the TaBlE 
code but also started wondering if we should still provide this 
mechanism in \MKIV. I'm considering making it a module, and then remove 
the color options from it as it's a kludge anyway. Using thi smechanism 
has no real advantages over tabulate or TABLE (apart maybe from speed).

I uploaded a new beta (which then will be synced with the minimals).
