[metapost] Asymptote

The authors of the vector graphics language Asymptote state:
"It was inspired by an earlier drawing program (with a weaker syntax
and capabilities) called MetaPost."  They don't say, but it can hardly
be a coincidence, that ASMPTOTE is an anagram of METAPOST.

Would that snide remark, assuming it was true for MetaPost 1.2
or whatever it was when Asymptote split off four years ago, still
be plausible for MetaPost 1.8?
