Good idea, thanks.

I might also integrate the figures (they're all MetaPost) into the
.tex source, what I couldn't do in (e)plain TeX.  I expect I'll have a
few questions after I try that :-) The MetaFun manual already told me
the answer to one of them: how to have common settings and macros
across all the MetaPost figures (\startMPinclusions).
