# [NTG-context] RTL columns for itemize

Hi,

Is there a way to typeset \startitemize with columns options, such that
columns go from right to left?  In the underlying structure
\startstopcolumns, there is an option "direction" which can be set to
"left" to achieve this.  I couldn't figure out how to do this within
\startitemize though.

\setupalign[r2l]
\starttext

Hello!

\startitemize[columns,three,packed,n]
\item One
\item Two
\item Three
\item Four
\item Five
\item Six
\item Seven
\stopitemize

\stoptext

The result looks like the following:

!olleH
enO .1         ruoF .4     neveS .7
owT .2         eviF .5
eerhT .3           xiS .6

How about \startcombination?  Can I use RTL ordering with that, too?  This
is less important than the above since the labels are usually set manually
and one can just use the visual ordering rather than the logical one.
(That is, except one tries to get automatic numbering for the figures
inside the combination but that's not common at all.)

Best,
—MHB
