Dou you use a template for your letters.

LaTeX has two packages to create invoices and we could also
have one for ConTeXt but it makes only sense to use it with LuaTeX,
TeX's arithmetic to limited for longer calculations.

Different header for the first and another one for the following headers
is simple and possible with my module. The option to change the layout
for odd and even pages is currently not supported but should be
possible but it has to be integrated in the normal interface.

This is also possible with ConTeXt because you could setup layers
to place content dependent on left and right pages and the page layout
could also change for left and right pages as long as you don't change
the text width.
