Please: less drama, more useful information (i.e., full document showing your problem).

comment How to get the current directory name in ConTeXt?
The question is tagged "context-mkiv," so yes, this is luatex.

comment Providing Arguments to a Start-Stop
Why don't you use the regular \startsection ... \stopsection and \startsubsection? That will give you the benefit of being able to add the title. And you can define every section to equal one slide.

comment Managing hundreds of separate components in a large document
@Yiannis: I have no fundamental disagreement with what you write (well, I find the "3 minutes" part a bit hard to believe :-). The main reason why I would advocate something such as xml is versatility: you never know what you want to do with these examples next year - maybe you want to serve them over the net, or convert them to a different format? With xml, you have an entire toolchain that will help you do many many things with your content, while tex is difficult to parse with anything but, well, TeX.

comment Managing hundreds of separate components in a large document
+1 for using some form of database; I don't think that tex-files are the best form for storing and retrieving such content. I would look into using xml for this; ConTeXt's capabilities in working with xml are absolutely amazing. I hope it's not too shameless if I point out that I've written something on using databases (sql and xml) with ConTeXt in MAPS 2011 (currently available only for members of NTG).

comment Ligatures: why “fi”, but not “fj” as well?
@tohecz Difficult to say, of course, without knowing the context of your use, and without having a really knowledgeable person look at it (I'm a bloody amateur myself). But just to answer your question and give you a few ideas: the following fonts have 'fj' ligatures - I checked in fontforge. (The question how you would use these ligs in TeX is of course left as an exercise to the reader...): Adobe Garamond, Adobe ArnoPro, Linux Libertine, Storm Baskerville. Another possibility, of course: use a font where the ligature isn't needed because there is no clash...

comment Ligatures: why “fi”, but not “fj” as well?
My suggestion would be 4.: Look for a font that does have the fj ligature (a few do) and use that. You're right, the result does look strange as it is now.
