What about moving appendix B of mpgraph to mpman, completely?

Good idea. I've checked-out <URL:svn://scm.foundry.supelec.fr/metapost>
and attached a small patch to this mail. It adds to mpman.tex
(i) a missing troff-related label, and
(ii) "length <string>" to the list of operators.
I did not add "length <picture>" since that is mentioned in mpgraph.tex
and I didn't want to start with a bigger change on my own (and lack of
time of course). I'll see if I can contribute more later. Where should
patches be sent to?
