[NTG-context] Can itemize calculate optimal label widths?

Hi all!

Is there a possiblity to have itemize calculate the optimal label width 
itself? I have an itemize that has rather different labels, e.g.:

\startitemize
\sym{1.} An item
\sym{2.} Another item
\sym{103 a.} An item with a very broad label
\stopitemize

In this example the label "103 a." flows into the item text. It would be 
great if itemize would automatically use a label width that fits the 
broadest label.

Thanks for your attention,
