Thank you very much.

I hope that the module in
https://github.com/mojca/context-gnuplot/
is hotfixed now, thanks to Marco's extensive support. If anyone is
willing to do a couple more basic tests, I would be grateful. I plan
to upload this version to CTAN to get it into TeX Live and our
distribution.

Apart from that, Marco is working on a heavily modified version of the
module (for MKVI). Once that one is tested, we'll upload it as well,
but this patch is just to make the module usable again.

I'm very sorry that it took me so long.
