it was not a pure joke :) several times i looked at context, i was
founding that it was not possible to process even cyrillic file

i just tested with context included into current TeX Live depot, and
tried to process the file samle.tex which was included into teTeX2.0
(but is absent in current TeX Live), and it produced an error about
undefined control sequence \cyrillicK (i've attached that file).

will context work right if the document will consist of parts written
in different 8-bit encodings (when there will be auxiliary files
written too)?
