fmtutil assumes a unique format name, while some ConTeXt users
want to use the same format name with the other engine.
Therefore Olaf introduced $engine when he unified the
format suffix (.fmt).
Thomas decided not to support the $engine mechanism in
fmtutil because most people may not need the mechanism,
and because it is a bit complicated.
