I do. As an editor of a TeX journal I _must_ be able to process
whatever document I receive from authors. As a developer I must be
able to create what users need and they need solutions based upon
certain packages etc. As a consultant I must be able to test any
package the customers wish and give advices. As a typographer I must
be able to typeset anything in any language. Thus I basically need
everything. I have not used ConTeXt so far but it may be a question of
time. If a customer asks me for help with ConTeXt, I will have to
learn it quickly.
