For "historic" reasons,
      draw externalfigure "cow" scaled 5cm ;
normalizes the figure to a square. This will not be changed as it
is a very old feature of MetaFun.

The solution is
      draw rawtextext("\externalfigure[cow]") xsized 5cm ;
where one can use xsized, ysized or xysized (taking a pair).

That works indeed. Thanks.
draw figure "...." ...

That's what I was looking for. Thanks.
the "externalfigure" variant is an old one that had to deal with dimensions in a way that avoids overflows

in a future context (read luatex 1.09+) we go one-pass-mp so we can have a different approach (i never wanted to add a ton of code for images) so there externalfigure will scale proportionally too
