[NTG-context] Parallel text support

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:


\dorecurse{3}{\input knuth}

\startxcell Text \stopxcell
\startxcell √úbersetzung \stopxcell
\startxcell \input ward \stopxcell
\startxcell \input tufte \stopxcell


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...
