[NTG-context] 2UP Arranging

Using 2UP the rightmargin on odd (recto) pages becomes the leftmargin on even (verso) pages.

Is there an option for 2UP doublesided to be printed and folded where the rightmargin is always on the righthand side of each ‘page’ from the reader’s viewpoint? Or another layout scheme to get the same result?

This mwe shows 2UP default:

\definepapersize[booklet][width=140mm,height=216mm]
\setuppapersize[booklet][letter,landscape]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]
\setuparranging[2UP,doublesided]

\setuplayout[
  width=92mm,
  leftedge=0mm,  
  leftmargin=0mm,
  backspace=15mm,
  rightmargindistance=3mm,
  rightmargin=25mm,
  ]

\showframe

\starttext
\dorecurse{4}{\input ward \page}
\stoptext

And this gives an image of the desired layout:

\definepapersize[booklet][width=140mm,height=216mm]
\setuppapersize[booklet][letter,landscape]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]
\setuparranging[2UP,doublesided]

\setuplayout[
  width=92mm,
  leftedge=0mm,  
  leftmargin=0mm,
  backspace=15mm,
  rightmargindistance=3mm,
  rightmargin=25mm,
  ]

\definelayout[evenside][
  width=92mm,
  leftmargindistance=3mm,
  leftmargin=25mm,
  backspace=43mm,
  rigthedge=0mm,
  rightmargin=0mm,
  ]

\showframe

\starttext
\input ward \page
\setuplayout[evenside] \input ward \page
\setuplayout[reset] \input ward \page
\setuplayout[evenside] \input ward 
\stoptext

I would like to avoid the manual switching if possible. Thanks!
John
