[XeTeX] MetaPost with XeTeX

Dear List Members,
Just two quick questions concerning MetaPost:
1) Is it possible to get MetaPost to call XeTeX, instead of normal
TeX, to typeset labels within diagrams using some of the fonts that
XeTeX can access?
2) Is it possible to call MetaPost from within XeTeX (using something
like mfpic.sty or emp.sty)?
The first question is motivated by an ongoing font selection dilemma
of a purely aesthetic nature, i.e. has a fairly low priority in the
overall scheme of things. The second issue is also not critical, as
most of the MetaPost graphics I need to insert consist of a small set
of pre-existing intonation contour symbols that get used again and
again, i.e. there would be no real point in trying to generate them
on-the-fly each time anyway. But I'm curious to learn more about how
XeTeX and MetaPost interact (or don't (yet)).
