Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
METATeX is a set of plain TeX and METAFONT macros that you can use to 
define both the text and the figures in a single source file. Because 
METATeX sets up two way communication, from TeX to METAFONT and back 
from METAFONT to TeX, drawing dimensions can be controlled by TeX and 
labels can be located by METAFONT. Only standard features of TeX and
METAFONT are used, but two runs of TeX and one of METAFONT are needed.
