The standalone context is mostly free from mkii, but cont-tmf.zip
still has most of the legacy stuff, which will mostly be added back
in, in the form of a context-legacy package for TL. I find sorting
things out and creating / modifying the .tlpsrc definitions for the
context packages a tricky business; it is going a lot slower than I
hoped and expected.
