Well as there seems to be no way of holding two 
different versions of acrobat on a single windows
system, and there is no sign of it ever getting
remedied, it might as well be gone for good.
My next lecture starts on Oct 1, I need something
which will work at this point in time.

As my knowledge of JavaScript is nil, I was hoping
for some code which could be plugged into
hyperref's implementation of pdfpageduration ;-)

Is animated TeX code (or animated MetaPost diagrams)
supported by ConTeXt?
If yes, maybe I can deduce something from that
