[NTG-context] Description nesting

Hello,

Is there a way to nest some descriptions, where the nested descriptions  
respect the enclosing indentation?

Funnily the wiki speaks about the subject  
(http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Description) but doesn't give any solution  
(btw, the given solution to have several paragraphs in a description looks  
obsolete since \start \stop works pretty well).

Here is an example that I would like to see working:

\definedescription[descr][
   headstyle=bold,style=normal,align=left,location=hanging,
   width=broad,margin=1cm]

\setupwhitespace[medium]

\starttext

\startdescr{Para}
   This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
   The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.

   This is another paragraph under the "Para" item.

   \startdescr{SubPara1}
   This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
   The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.
   \stopdescr
   \startdescr{SubPara2}
   This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
   The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.
   \stopdescr
\stopdescr

\stoptext
