[NTG-context] Nested itemize (spaces before and after inside environment)

Hi Jarda and all,

I tested it on my computer using CTX from TL 2010 and 2013 and I have got
the same result in both cases. It seems that the content of the option before 
is completely ignored. I tested another values for this option
(\page,\vskip,\godown...), no result.

The only one way which works is the manual addition of \blank before and
after the nested itemize environment, unfortunatelly.

---

Another interesting thing is that the compiler of CTX in TL 2013 does not
report an error when I forgot the opening \starttext, or the closing
\stoptext, or both, whereas in TL 2010 it does. Is this expected behaviour?

Best regards,

Tomas Hala

# Hello ConTeXist.
# 
# I tried convert plainTeX source code into ConTeXt  source code so
# that the output PDF gave the same (or approximately the same)
# result. I did it for one of plainTEX developers (Mr. Olšák), which
# compared results of PlainTeX, LaTeX and ConTeXt. However, I
# encountered the following problem.
# 
# Is there a way to adjust the spacing before internal itemize
# environment when the external itemize environment is set as PACKED?
# 
# Thanx JaroslavHajtmar
# 
# Here is my minimal example:
# 
# 
# \setupitemize[1][packed][symbol=n,before={\blank[medium]},after={\blank[medium]}]
# \setupitemize[2][packed][symbol=a,stopper=),before={\blank[big]},after={\blank[big]}]
# 
# \starttext
# 
# This is normal text before itemize list.
# 
# \startitemize
# \item First 1 level
# \item Second 1 level
#   \startitemize
#   \item First 2 level (before this line should be big space)
#   \item Second 2 level
#   \item Third  2 level (after this line should be big space)
#   \stopitemize
# \item Third 1 level
# \item Fourth 1 level
# \stopitemize
# 
# This is normal text after itemize list.
# 
# 
# \stoptext
