[tex-live] mpost version

I'm finishing a package to use mplib to typeset metapost directly in 
LuaTeX. The problem is that the mplib of LuaTeX needs a .mem file made 
with the same version of mplib. In the current (svn) version of LuaTeX, 
the mplib is in version 1.102, and in TeXLive 2008 the version of 
Metapost is 1.005.

The questions is: will the versions of the mplib in LuaTeX and Metapost 
be the same in TeXLive 2009? If not (which I would perfectly 
understand), would it be possible to add something like a 
luatex-plain.mem accessible like  the other .mem files? What name would 
be the most appropriate?

Currently, when the versions don't match, my package generates a 
mpost.mem in the current directory and uses it then, but if it's 
avoidable in TeXLive 2009, it would be good...

Thank you in advance,
