not really as the new injector does more ... also, the new code is kind 
of beta so it might not be a good idea to use that in latex already ... 
i'm still working on some issues with disc nodes and fonts that have 
ligatures that are not ligatures

so, i'd first like to do more tests here; of course you can use the new 
injector if you want ... (i'm not touching generic now while messing 
with the context variant)
