I had a problem with my mailer, so please excuse me if this is double-posted.

Okay, here's my two cents:

I'm not migrating anywhere from MetaPost.  I like MetaPost and will continue
to use it, whether any improvements are made to it or not.  It ain't broke, it
doesn't need to be fixed.

I use it primarily to process the output of my own package, GNU 3DLDF, which
currently only outputs MetaPost code.  One of the purposes of 3DLDF is to get
people interested in MetaPost, METAFONT, TeX, and the work of Donald Knuth in
general.  When I don't need 3D, I sometimes just use MP as-is.

If most people prefer to use other packages, who cares?
