Hi François,

I'm very glad that you've found cairo useful!

I used Metapost for all the diagrams I did for my M.S. thesis several
years ago, so it makes me feel good to know that code I'm using now is
being used to improve Metapost implementations or related software.

Have fun, and thanks for sharing.
