Great idea. To add to it, you don't want to include the admin context.
Any others including system which does not show up in a "show
contexts".  I am not sure how the config looks for the admin view with
multiple contexts, but we have only the admin and system contexts and
the configs are the same that I can tell.

act/hq-pix-1/admin# show context
Context Name      Class      Interfaces           URL
*admin            default    GigabitEthernet0/0,  disk0:/admin.cfg
