Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
MetaPlot is a set of Metapost macros for manipulating pre-generated plots 
(and similar objects), and formatting them for inclusion in a Metapost 
figure.  The intent is that the plots can be generated by some outside 
program, in an abstract manner that does not require making decisions 
about on-page sizing and layout, and then they can be imported into MetaPlot 
and arranged using the full  capabilities of Metapost.  Metaplot also 
includes a very flexible set of macros for generating plot axes, which 
may be useful in other contexts as well.

Presently, MetaPlot is in something of a pre-release beta state; it is 
quite functional, but the syntax of the commands are still potentially 
in flux.  Bug reports and other suggestions would be most welcome!
