Within the TeX world: in practice that means the LaTeX world.  Get rid 
of the need to process your figures separately.  Borrow more from 
ConTeXT into LaTeX so that you can just say 
	\begin{metapost} ... \end{metapost}.  

Outside the TeX world: in practice that means the Word/OpenOffice 
world.  Make a nice leaflet about MetaPost and hand it out on
street corners.  Remember to put banking details at the end.
