The current goal is to add an option to load the code directly
from Context (TL, minimals). Right now this is non-trivial due to
the extra packaging step involved, so the option will facilitate
testing a lot. Let’s see if anyone is confident enough to test
the fontloader on their own if it becomes easier.

Just running my tests ;) I’m fairly content with the prospect
that the issue is already addressed in the beta.
