Actually, in MkII indenting=yes does the right thing (no indentation of 
the first line). I would consider MkIV behavior a bug.

I don't know what is the best solution. Perhaps changing




Then, \setupitemize[1][indenting=first] will indent the first line, 
indenting=yes, will not (untested).

Another option is to change reset so that it sets indentfirstparagraph to 
false, but that might create havoc at other places.
