It is time to get it into Debian I think. It was clear that it wont go
into etch, but I want to see proper context support in lenny, and
neither texlive upstream nor tetex has this.

Not that I care for ConTeXt, I am not a context user, but I want to have
everything TeX related more or less up2date.

You are heartly invited to write something better, it is all in our svn
repository. I am quite bad in writing stupid texts (better in writing
math) and I just copied the text from the website/description/doc.
