[Since I'm not sure who is responsible for generating the pattern
files for ConTeXt I'm writing to this list.]
If I look into file
I see the following.
["texcomment"]="% no comment",
However, version information is completely missing. For example, file
% version: 2019-04-04
[Arthur worked hard to make the comment format uniform for all
pattern files in `hyph-utf8`!]
This omission is really bad IMHO, since the version of the patterns
are essential to get identical line breaks for older documents.
I guess it shouldn't be too difficiult to update the `mtxrun` script,
making it add
to the 'metadata' block. Or maybe it's better to make it update the
`.rme` files with the corresponding information.
