these kind of things are completely unrelated to specific macro packages (in your case latex); actually, one can write macros that quite well integrate mp into tex (which we've been doing for ages in context); what would help is to have MP as a library (speed issue) and this is what will happen in luatex (pdftex 2+) next year
