I run almost every document with \asciimode, so I can surely test
that aspect, but I'm not using MetaPost a lot these days. I ran a
few projects and it seems to work fine. But that's not what I'd call
extensive testing.

I think compiling the MetaPost manual would be a good test. But on
my machine this fails even without the \ctxcatcode fix in place.

Maybe someone else with more MetaPost-heavy workflows¹ can test
this, too?
