I know context and it seems very nice and metafun is great, but I
never dared to do the switch. I believe I cannot seemlessly use my
latex code and packages in context. Am I wrong?

The number of latex users and available packages are probably much
higher than context's.

So the limitations I mentioned actually are non-existant?

This is interesting! Will it integrate existing code, lua, metapost
and latex?
