[NTG-context] Variable space with hanging description

Dear all,

I recently switched to mkiv and experienced some problems with
descriptions when set with alternative=hanging. The horizontal space
between the description title and the rest of the text varies a lot and
looks ugly. When the same code is compiled with mkii, this space is
almost constant (replace alternative=hanging by location=hanging in mkii).

Thanks
Cedric
