[NTG-context] help on def & buffer

Than you Hans!
My plan is simply to use the output of a sagemath run in this way. A run
should produce
several files containing TeX code. I only wanted to shorten the
\startbuffer \input ... \stopbuffer
sequence. Maybe this (including sagemath output) could be done differently,
but this was
the first (and only ;-)) idea I came up with.

kind regards
Erik
