Good thought, which I tried, though neither setting resolved the

Mostly conservatism.  I cannot quite figure out the canonical
replacement for btex ... etex (textext, sometext?), and then I get
confused by the many possible environments.

What do you recommend as the best btex...etex replacement and the best
environment for replacing a standalong metapost figure (that I would
otherwise just include with \externalfigure)?
