While reading Taco's response something else came to my mind: here's
what I did in one of the presentations:

\startsetups award:gold
\useexternalfigure[medal][medal_gold][height=7.5cm]
\stopsetups

\startsetups award:silver
\useexternalfigure[medal][medal_silver][height=7.5cm]
\stopsetups

\startsetups award:bronze
\useexternalfigure[medal][medal_bronze][height=7.5cm]
\stopsetups

After that I just issued \setups{award:gold} at the top of product
file for gold medallists while using the same page layout for all the
medallists (with a simple \externalfigure[medal] which was good for
any medallist).

I guess that you could also do something like

\startsetups chapter:1
\useexternalfigure[fig-1][1/fig-1.pdf]
\useexternalfigure[fig-2][1/fig-2.pdf]
\stopsetups

\startsetups chapter:2
\useexternalfigure[fig-1][2/fig-1.pdf]
...
\stopsetups

\starttext
\setups{chapter:1}
\externalfigure[fig-1]
\externalfigure[fig-2]
\setups{chapter:2}
\externalfigure[fig-1]
\stoptext


Just out of curiosity I tried the following:

\startsetups chapter:1

\dorecurse{10}{\useexternalfigure[fig-\recurselevel][1/fig-\recurselevel.pdf]}
\stopsetups

\startsetups chapter:2

\dorecurse{10}{\useexternalfigure[fig-\recurselevel][2/fig-\recurselevel.pdf]}
\stopsetups

But you should ask someone else where to expand stuff to make it work.

Good idea, thanks.  

I might also integrate the figures (they're all MetaPost) into the
.tex source, what I couldn't do in (e)plain TeX.  I expect I'll have a
few questions after I try that :-) The MetaFun manual already told me
the answer to one of them: how to have common settings and macros
across all the MetaPost figures (\startMPinclusions).

 The figure searching code gets confused if a file of the same
 basename (but in a different directory) has already been loaded.

Looking a bit into this, it seems that the decision about whether a
figure is already loaded is made in core-fig.tex, in

\def\calculateexternalfigure[#1][#2][#3][#4][#5][#6]%
...
   \ifcase\figurestatus
 \let\@@efframe\v!on
 \let\@@efobject\v!no
 \showmessage\m!figures1\@@effilename
   \or
 \showmessage\m!figures2\@@effullname
   \or
 \showmessage\m!figures3{\@@effullname,\@@eflenttype}%
   \or
 \showmessage\m!figures4\@@effullname
   \or
 \showmessage\m!figures5{\@@effullname,\@@efloadname}%
   \or % no message
 \doifnot\@@efsymbol\v!yes{\showmessage\m!figures8\@@effullname}%
   \fi
...

The no message comment suggests that when \figurestatus isn't set,
the message shown is figures8, which is

 8: figureobject -- is reused

But I couldn't figure out who sets \figurestatus and where the
judgement of 'already loaded' is made.  The comment at the beginning
of the above \def (this whole mess needs a clean up anyway) scared
me away :-)
