[metapost] Metafun + plainLuaTeX/LuaLaTeX

Hi all,

maybe this question is a really stupid one, but I hope someone of you 
can help me: I'd like to learn MetaFun; however, I don't want to use it 
with ConTeXt, but with plainLuaTeX or LuaLaTeX, using LuaTeXs mplib. As 
far as I understood, MetaFun is a format for MetaPost and therefore I 
thought it should be independent of the TeX format used – is this true? 
Or does ConTeXt offer additional stuff on format level that are 
necessary for using MetaFun?
Finally, if one can use MetaFun with plainLuaTeX – how to do so on a 
(Linux x86_64) TeX live 2011? In TeX live 2010, I find the file 
metafun.mp from which I guess it is the format for MetaPost.

As you see, I have basically no idea what I need in order to get MetaFun 
working – I'll be very thankful for any hints where to start …
