not so much edmac, but similar functionality; as idris suggests: just provide a 
request for functionality + examples; think about what you want in context (or 
your docs) and not so much of what edmac does. (thinsg like configurable 
footnotes are already there)

I actually considered that. During my own pre-ConTeXt work I dived deep 
into the EDMAC code and made changes so that I could do real 100% 
right-to-left critical editions. EDMAC has its own OTR, however, which 
makes it difficult to merely plug it in to ConTeXt or even LaTeX (though 
there has been a recent port to LaTeX).

As soon as I finish my present book project this month (I'm really 
behind-) I'll be working on the critical edition business as well (I have 
to finish a critical edition for Springer Verlag (formerly Kluwer) this 
spring); maybe we can share notes and bother Hans together;-)

sounds ok to me; also keep in mind that much of what you want is already 
there!

OK, I feel guilty resurrecting this stale thread, but I can't resist 
asking again.

I found this in m-arabtex.tex:
%\pushmacro\edmacloaded   \let \edmacloaded   \undefined
and later
%\popmacro\edmacloaded
Both lines are commented out, so I'm still wondering if
i talked with Klaus Lagally at eurotex and he will make arabtex a bit more 
context friendly: a few more hooks, context aware loading, etc

he will also look into the recent problems (may hav eto do with loading heberw 
(no longer needed, part of arabtex kernel)
