Bruno, I've seen i-Installer asking with some i-Packages where to  
install. It was a button which offers installation places in teTeX,  
gwTeX, or TeX Live ... (Could be after some sleep I can remember more  
precisely – can't you check this with your extra i-Packages? And if  
you try with the ConTeXt updater: you do need to install it, just  
play with it!)

My bed is now warm!
