At the time the wave::context object was developed it was not safe to be
copied, and in fact it isn't so today. But AFAICS there is no real reason
why it couldn't be made copyable (except for the reason that it's _very_
expensive to copy a wave::context object). There was just no usecase yet to
make it copyable.
Could you please describe in more detail your usecase? Since this change
will be interface breaking it perhaps makes sense to adjust other interface
deficies you may have as well?
