[NTG-context] Itemization formatting

Hi Taco,

probably, there is missing one pair of []:

\setupitemize[1][][margin=1cm]
\setupitemize[2][][margin=2cm]

I tried it with TL2018 and I guess it works.

Best wishes,

Tomáš

# Hi all,
# 
# I must be getting old :( 
# 
# It used to be that I could get ConTeXt to do what I wanted, but that is increasingly getting harder.
# 
# Current problem: I would like to have itemizations that behave like in this dummy
# ascii formatting:
# 
#   *   Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec dapibus turpis et 
#   nulla venenatis tincidunt. Curabitur sit amet vehicula nisi, sit amet
# 
# and so far it has been impossible for me to set up \setupitemize to do what I want.
# 
# In descriptive text, what I want is:
# 
# 1. some global indentation to the left and/or right. That is what the margin= key does
# 2. the symbol (or number) typeset in a specific width. That is the width= key
# 3. some distance between the number box and the following text. That is the distance= key
# 4. on line 2 and forward to the end of the item, I want a *different* indentation from the first item line. 
# 
# In this particular case, I want no extra indentation except for ‘margin’, but in other
# cases I may like either more or less indentation than on line 1 of the first para of the item.
# 
# The desired effect is simple achieve with primitive operations, but I would like the input
# to look nice (not to mention that I do not want to loose options for cross-referencing etc).
# 
#   \setupitemize[option=intext]
# 
# is nearly right for this case (with indentation equal to the left margin), so I assumed I would 
# be able to tweak that. But the problem there is that while it does 2-4, it ignores the extra 
# indentation required for nested itemizations (it even ignores explicit margin= settings for the
# nested level). After fighting with this for hours, I am nearly ready to give up.
# 
# Anybody have any idea how to get itemizations to do what I want?
# 
# MWE attached.
# 
# Best wishes,
# Taco
# PS It seems that “indentnext=no” does not work for nested itemizations?
