I meant that TeXworks refers to "context" and "xecontext" for the
Typeset box.  The underlying definitions are as you say both texexec.

I guess the issue there is that a binary route is ConTeXt-specific,
whereas the "Remove aux files" menu item is generic and so has to do the
job directly (unless the action of the menu item is much more variable
than simply changing config file).
