[NTG-context] anaemic spacing around in-line typed text

Hello Taco,

Thanks, I came up with the following

\def\comm#1{{\tt#1}\,}

\starttext
The \comm{rand} function generates pseudo-random numbers.
\stoptext

I quite satisfied with it, but maybe there is better way to typeset
programming keywords?

Best regards,
Vyatcheslav Yatskovsky
