Dear Hans,

Sorry for my other answer, I didn't spot this mail!

That's what I'm thinking about yes, only local(left/right)box and 
spacings are enough, no hz, protrusion, hyphenation, etc.

Can the current state be found somewhere?

In which ConTeXt file does it lie? I have to say speed is what I'm a bit 
affraid of... Most gregorian chant books are less than 20 pages long, 
but some edit 800 pages score books... But well, gregorian chant scores 
*are* complex,they'll certainly understand!

Thank you,
