An internal all-or-nothing switch would be possible, the commands that
come from mpx files are pretty easy to isolate. But ...

... it is not feasible to split 'rules from \rules' from 'rules from vf
characters', so I doubt it would help much. If you don't want to use
drawoptions for labels, why not redefine the label() macro?
