Hello,

\setupheadertexts [{left odd}] [{right odd}] [{left even}] [{right even}]
sets the left and right headers for even and odd pages
(perhaps I have this backwards?)

(1) It would be useful to have
but this does not work.
In this case, we probably also need a *six* argument version (even/odd).

(2) It would also be useful that
NOT wipe-out left and right if they are set
(but I could live with this perhaps historical behavior if we were to have (1).)

(3) It is a bit messy that one must use
*two calls* in order to have no centered header.
(Again, I could live with
if we were to have (1).)

Similarly for footertexts, of course.
What is the reasoning, presently?

ALTERNATIVELY (or additionally), we could have
