More thoughts for the tracker item on putting mp into shell_escape_commands: - somehow have to arrange to ensure tex is invoked with paranoid   settings -- we don't enable tex itself, at present. - probably need to arrange that MPXCOMMAND is not read from anywhere,   but just uses a hardwired default. We can think more about this over the year. Heiko and/or Alexander Cherepanov sent several messages to tex-live regarding enabling tex back in fall 2009 when we were first thinking to enable restricted \write18.
