comment How to set output directory in context command?
Yes, the options are not identical. ConTeXt always assumes that you have write permissions in CWD.

FWIW, the filter module works with MkII as well.

comment How do I add a static number to \recurselevel?
I don't fully understand the problem that you are trying to solve, but using combinations for imposition does not feel right. ConTeXt has lots of options for imposition, so I would suggest posting your requirements in a separate question.

comment How to do grid typesetting with amsmath?
It may still be worthwhile to check the definition of \gform in ConTeXt and see if it can be translated to LaTeX.

If the calculations get too complicated for TeX, you can always use Lua. See the CLD(context Lua documents) manual for details.

comment How to strip curly-braces from variable before using it as a filename?
OT: Rather than changing the global catcode of _ (which will cause troubles in the math environments), it is better to use the underscore package.

comment Fix all quotes in a document (pasted from another)
On vim, you can use <CTRL-K>+"6 and $<CTRL-K>+"9` for unicode quotes.

comment Fix all quotes in a document (pasted from another)
Personally, I prefer Unicode quotes to the horrible TeX quote syntax. Modern TeX engines (xetex and luatex) handle unicode just fine. I am more familiar with ConTeXt. In ConTeXt MkIV (luatex engine), unicode quotes work out of the box; In ConTeXt MkII (pdftex and xetex engine), unicode quotes work once you add \enableregime[utf-8]. I am sure similar options exist for LaTeX (most likely using the inputenc package).

comment How do I make text not overlap layers or otherwise define a first page with sidebar and image-based footer?
This is a limitation of TeX which first typesets paragraphs and then breaks them into a page. So the width of a paragraph cannot change in the middle.

comment autopunctuation not working properly
@mbrok: Looks like a bug in the current implementation. Please report it to the ConTeXt mailing list.
