[NTG-context] does metafun require texexec --final?

Thanks for the pointer.  I don't have a cont-sys.tex, but cont-sys.rme
has these lines

% \runMPgraphicstrue
% \runMPTEXgraphicstrue

The .rme extension meant I'd missed it when I ran grep on the .tex
files.  I'll uncomment them.

Oh, that's not a good idea, because the next context update will
overwrite cont-sys.rme.  So I should copy cont-sys.rme to cont-sys.tex
first, then uncomment the lines in cont-sys.tex.  But then a context
update will overwrite cont-sys.rme, and the new version will be
ignored because I have a cont-sys.tex.  

So maybe the best approach is to edit cont-sys.rme directly, then
merge changes (using a revision control system like mercurial or git)
that arrive with the new context distributions.
