No way for PageLink to distinguish between an explicitly empty page activate context and normal delegation to the target page's passivate event

      Description

      It isn't possible to set an empty context using 'contex' parameter of PageLink. It always treats null and zero length array/list in the same way - asks the page about its activation context via onPassivate. I think that only null should trigger onPassivate.

      Example

      <a t:type="PageLink" page="test" context="context">page link</a>

      public Object[] getContext()
      {
      if (test == 0)
      return new Object[]

      {"1", "2"}

      ; // context will be ../test/1/2
      else
      if (test == 1)
      return new Object[0]; // onPassivate will be asked but context should be empty IMO
      else
      return null; // onPassivate will be asked, ok
      }
