This works, of course. However it continues with sans font even
after \stopMPcode. This is better (but clumsy):

draw textext("This should be sans");
Here serif again.

The text in Metapost adapts to the text set in ConTeXt. But the font
setup should *only* be set for MetaPost, not regular text.

Does that mean, that MPenvironment is deprecated and does not work
at all?
