Hm. I came up with

def draworiented expr c =
  path _c_ ; _c_ := c ;
enddef ;

def do_draworiented text t =
  draw _c_ t ;
  drawarrow subpath(0, length(_c_)/2) of _c_ ;
which works, although I have to do

draworiented (reverse p1)

Is there an easy way to have it work with

draworiented reverse p1 ?
