I looked at ConTeXt, however as far as I can tell it still doesn't
handle close wrapping of text around floats in multicolumn environments.
You can span, say, any two _complete_ column widths on a three or four
column page, but you can't successfully wrap around a left-side 1.5
column float for that portion of a half-column width in the second

Sorry to all about the continuing OT-ness of this thread.
