Mojca, does ConTeXt use TEXMFCACHE?  Would this disturb anything?

In general, having another variable name/tree in texmf.cnf does not make
me happy, but if it's the right thing to do, fine.  Can someone please
describe its purpose (as distinct from the other trees) in a couple of
sentences so I can put it into the documentation?

Ok, I understand better now, sorry. Karl, do you think it would be a 
good idea to make this change?
