[NTG-context] Passing variable values on invoking context

A bit of help, please.

I currently have a chunk at the start of a text file, like this

\setvariables
  [Path]
  [Thread={Ee_01_PN},

  .....

   Mode=full]
\stopbuffer

I invoke the file with

context  filename.tex

Is there a way to pass the value of the variable to context on invocation?

So the top of the header might read:


\setvariables
  [Path]
  [Thread={Ee_01_PN},

  .....

   ]
\stopbuffer

And the invocation:

context  filename.tex (bit of magic) Mode=full

If so, I could use this a few times...it's not a big deal but would
mean I could prepare some fixed command files, rather than a search
and replace for Mode=full to Mode=light through al the text files
called by this kind of invocation.

Thanks in anticipation.

Ian
