Unless you are personally willing to spend a considerable amount of
time and effort on such a merge, it is unlikely that this will happen.

Metapost and Metafont are branches of the same tree, but that makes
actually merging them harder, not easier (the same global names are
used for different purposes sometimes, function have been partially
rewritten, @define names stand for different values, etc.).

There are plans to extend metapost, but we want to make sure all open
bugs are fixed first before we do any non-trivial other work. If you
want to help out, we would be very happy. The current buglist is here:
