Concerning loading cp8bit each time: i often have jobs that do a lot of 
metapost processing in between (sometimes hundreds) and since mp also loads 
the cp8bit this gives me an uncomfortable feeling when i look at the 
terminal: a document of 150 pages with one (cumulative) mp graphic per page 
plus some extra per chapter, times say 3 runs to get all cross refs and two 
pass info done, makes some 600 loads of cp8bit ... so, a -8bit switch with 
a preloaded 8 bit mapping makes sense, if only because it gives those who 
view such a log not an uncomfortable feeling of waste of time and 
old-fashionedness -)
