"Curiouser and curiouser!" cried Alice.

context has two different versions of \define, there is one in
which has no parameters but prevents you from overwriting a existing
command (there \redefine
with allows this) and another one in core-sys.mkii/mkiv which replace
the first one and has
support for parameters but replace on the other side the old definition
(you get only the
terminal message)

the question is, which behavious is correct, replace the old macro or
keep it, in my
opinion \define should leave the old definition untouced and \redefine
should be used
in this case (but we need a version with parameters)
