A set is a list with symbols:

\starttext
\dorecurse {8}{\convertnumber{set 0}{\recurselevel}\quad}\par
\dorecurse {9}{\convertnumber{set 1}{\recurselevel}\quad}\par
\dorecurse{12}{\convertnumber{set 2}{\recurselevel}\quad}\par
\dorecurse{15}{\convertnumber{set 3}{\recurselevel}\quad}\par
\stoptext
