Non-Public API Usage

Hi Pink,

If you are using the names _getcontext, _makecontext and _setcontext for 
your handlers in your scripts, just change the names and make sure they 
are nowhere mentioned in your app. If you didn't use these handler 
names, report it as a bug to the QCC.

Kind regards,

Mark Schonewille
