Of course. I realized this after I sent my message.
I mistakenly thought that pdftex did something that I
had actually put in.

You have re>design< the wheel (and the transmission

My trouble is that I am trying to move old notes from
8-10 years ago from producing transparancies that get
filled in in places by hand to something I can project
from the computer, with  different stages being
different pages. Changing to LaTeX at the same time is
more than I want to do. [Anyway, I am not sure that
PPower can make things pop out in the middle or
cycle over a sequence of metapost figures.] And I was
already diddling with the output routines.
