Hello, Patrick,

a small proposal again: there are some commands in ConTeXt such as
\texteuro, \ccaron, \tracewhatever, ... which are not really proper
commands like \setupframed[..].

In case you still have any space for manipulation in that way: have
you considered a possibility for adding such "pseudo-commands" as
well? If you add support for such weird stuff, you can then add flags
to commands (in the sense of Categories on wiki), say "context
command" (those that are currently present in texshow), "symbol"
(texteuro, ccaron, dstroke, ...), "low-level commands" (do not use!),
"metafun macros" (although they currently don't really fit in very
well), "TeX primitive", "plain TeX macro", "commands from a certain
module" (bibliography, lettrine, m-* files, s-* files, ...)

The basic search would then consider only commands from the "same" set
that is currently present, while "full search" or links from wiki
could access the whole set of commands/macros/primitives/...

The stubborn Mojca again
