comment How do you test whether or not a ConTeXt module is installed?
@azetina: Depends on the module writer. In all the modules that I have written, I include a statement that gives the release date of the module. The only way to check if you have the most up to date version is to compare the release date from the versions on contextgarden or ctan.

comment ConTeXt: How to redefine the euro sign glyph?
Are there other fonts which have the right Euro symbol? If so, they may be used as fallbacks.

How about filing a bug report with the TeX Gyre project?

comment What are good packages / techniques for writing more readable LaTeX *code*?
@Superbest: that is an editor feature. In vim, i can type CTRL-K => to get the unicode glyph. Similar digraphs exist for other common unicode symbols as well

comment How to vertically center content of page without makeup in ConTeXt?
Yes. But my comment was motivated by the idea that all markup in a document should be semantic markup. The OP probably want a dedication page (or copyright page), so the markup should show that.

It may be better to define a startstop environment for this rather than entering the raw commands in the text

comment ConTeXt: Embed forward referenced figure
@DaveJarvis: yes you may do that, but then you will have to type the name of the figures twice. I find it more convenient to use a reference.

comment Why two intersected paths can't buildcycle in MetaPost?
Unfortunately, there is no automatic way of doing this (i.e., if the centres and radii of the circle change, you may need to rotate the other circle or not rotate any circle at all). I wish Metapost were smart enough to figure all this out on its own.
