Just to clarify. The new \hyphenateddigits means that witha couple of
tightly packed columns of footnotes it is nowpossible to break a
textual reference such as this acrosstwo lines.
({\it Ṛgveda}~\hyphenateddigits{1.114.10})
This is just great, and I can see it being used reasonablyoften.

Best, Richard

to be very useful for
breaking bibliographic refs including manuscript or
inscription codes in two column mode.

I'll add support for:

\starttext

\hsize6cm

    \pi\ = 
\hyphenateddigits[\unknown]{3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971
69399375105} 
  \blank
    \pi\ = 
\hyphenateddigits{3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510
5} 
            \blank
x $\pi  = 
\hyphenateddigits[\unknown]{3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971
69399375105}$ 
\blank
x $\pi  = 
\hyphenateddigits{3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510
5}$ 
          \blank

\stoptext

A quick and dirty hack as we don't need some full blown mechanism for 
such a rare case.
