That works, I can confirm.

Hard-coded absolute paths in TeX files are something I avoid, but I
assume that's just for demonstration here.

That works as well. It's a workaround at least.

But context returning success when it clearly doesn't include the
file is unfortunate. The missing file might go completely unnoticed.
I'd expect an error there.
