Some naive thoughts....

Do people still use

draw "string" infont fontname

Is it possible to provide a metapost package so that "...." defaults to 
textext?

For most graphics, I want TeX to do the typesetting. Using btex 
... etex or textext(...) for everything makes the source look ugly.


Something less drastic. Is it possible to define macros, say LABEL such 
that

LABEL("a string", origin)

is same as

label(textext(a string), origin)

I do not understand metapost well enough to  know if a macro can 
handle all the cases like

LABEL("a string" scaled 1.5, origin)

and so on.
