Thank you! That's something I couldn't have figured out myself. Now it 
makes sense to me why ini_version is true by default.

One more thing: to generate a pdf file from the given figure(s), should 
I call an external program, such as mptopdf? I see that mplib outputs 
Postscript and SVG and the pdf library does not seem to suit this 
purpose (but maybe I'm wrong).
