[NTG-context] How to extend btx rendering?

Alan,

thanks for your speedy reply.  Actually, I also dislike the scattered
specification of `eprint` and `archivePrefix`, but thought that it might
be better to keep it for interoperability between ConTeXt and biblatex.

The solution you sent to me works nicely and looks very clean.  I will
repeat it here, because you only sent it to me personally instead of the
list and it might be helpful to other people, so here it is:

@electronic{Kudryashov2016,
    title = {Normal State of the Metallic Hydrogen Sulfide},
    author = {Kudryashov, Nikolay A. and Kutukov, Alexander A. and
    Mazur, Evgeny A.},
    year = {2016},
    howpublished = {arxiv:1607.04624},
    url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1607.04624},
}

I think it would be advantageous to also have the eprint/howpublished
field available for @article such that I can link the arXiv even though
an article has been published.  This way people without subscription to
a specific journal can readily access the preprint (open-access
philosophy).  Do you consider this a viable option?

Cheers,
Henri
