[metapost] First GUI application linking to MPLib?

Hello! Thanks to the great help of all you nice people (who are very
patient with my multiple frequent posts), and with a special thanks to
Taco, I'm happy to say that I've successfully written a GUI program
using Qt linking to MPLib. Perhaps it's the first? (I'm not aware of
any previous attempts.)

FWIW I've attached it. The ZIP contains all that is needed except the
libmplib.a and a Qt development installation. Note that I've manually
inserted the locations of the include and lib directories for
compiling and linking into the makefile (and not using the usual Qt
mechanism) so that may need to be changed on your system.

Currently it doesn't do much -- it just takes hardcoded MP drawing
commands and displays the produced result -- but I'm happy at least
this "first light" stage is crossed so hereafter things can be taken
ahead. Considering the future development (though it's not much now),
the program is under the GPL.
