Hello again,

in the MWE below I’d like to limit the run width of the item text so that the (page) number is standing out, e.g.

• This is a long and winding text
that leads to a number .......... 99

The text can become one or several lines long.

I tried to put the text in boxes, e.g. \simplealignedbox{}{}{\vbox{...}} but I got only ugly spacing.
Also, the last line of the text continues in that leaders and number.

\starttext

\startitemize[packed,joinedup]
\startitem
\input tufte
\stopitem
\startitem
\input knuth

\stoptext
