(1) Usual platforms:
    ln -s mpost rmpost
    ln -s pmpost rpmpost
    ln -s upmpost rupmpost

(2) Windows
    copy mpost.exe rmpost.exe
    copy pmpost.exe rpmpost.exe
    copy upmpost.exe rupmpost.exe

Then "rmpost" is equivalent with "mpost -restricted", etc.

They will be convenient, though "btex ... etex" can't be used.
