[NTG-context] Parallel text support

Hi,

I'm trying to typeset a parallel text that should appear in columns. The 
sources are XML, and there I have to use tables for this. So, I thought 
the easiest way is to use extreme tables for this:

=========================
\starttext

\dorecurse{3}{\input knuth}

\startxtable[split=yes,frame=off]
\startxrow
\startxcell Text \stopxcell
\startxcell √úbersetzung \stopxcell
\stopxrow
\startxrow
\startxcell \input ward \stopxcell
\startxcell \input tufte \stopxcell
\stopxrow
\stopxtable

\stoptext
=========================

However, as it turns out, split only seems to mean that the table is 
split between rows, individual rows stay on the same page.

Is there a better approach? I've found the page-streams, but that seems 
to be too much...

Best,
Denis
