On re-reading my own README, it occurred to me that you may also use 
Lua(La)TeX directly with MetaPost. Just pass -tex=dviluatex or 
-tex=dvilualatex to the mpost command (there is also an example inside 
the folder above that shows you how to do it in TeXShop). If you know 
LaTeX and don't want to go the ConTeXt route, that may be another way to 
enhance MetaPost's text typesetting capabilities.
