Is this really a research question? I'll admit I'm not up enough on how
exactly contexts are implemented, but isn't it somewhat additive? Can't
you evaluate the teachpacks, save the data structure you get, evaluate
the user defs and use the saved structure or the final structure
depending on whether or not you get an error?

Obviously, I'm vastly oversimplifying or you wouldn't have said what you
said, but can you tell me how I'm oversimplifying concisely in a way
that's not likely to make my brain explode? :-) No is an acceptable
