Hi Fabrice and Bruce,

I agree that the source would be helpful to say what may be hard for
ConTeXt.

In any case, ConTeXt has a hard time with pagebreaks when you combine
elements that need both horizontal and vertical calculation, such as in:

\starttext
\dorecurse{64}
{\input knuth\footnote{\input zapf}

\startitemize[a, columns, eight, packed]
\dorecurse{64}{\item\currentitemnumber}
\stopitemize}
\stoptext

There is a similar issue with paragraph notes.
