This solution will work fine for any people that use
Hans' texexec to generate the formats instead of fmtutil,
since texexec --make doesn't use the --progname=mpost

Using texexec is the normal|advised way to run mpost with
metafun.mem preloaded, sop this solution will work just
fine in practise. The only bug on Hans' side  is that he
swapped the if/else branch so that the wrong case was

Why do you feel that metafun should use the mpost settings
instead of its own, btw? To me that sounds like you have
fmtutil set up backwards.

Greetings, Taco
