Yes, you're absolutely right … fiddling with the fonts is going to
spoil my day!
Now what about this: I've just realized that mptopdf actually runs a
ConTeXt background process that appears to have its default font size
set to 12pt. Incidently, my TeX labels come out at exactly 12pt …
since I'm almost always going to use mptopdf as a compiler anyway
could I perhaps make it run the ConTeXt process at 10pt font size?
Thus I'd probably get the opticals right and someone else would do the
fiddling for me ;-)
