Hi Bill,

we have rearranged therion metapost code in latest commits and now (using
last devel build) it should be possible to have boxed height labels just by
using following code in your layout:

code metapost

The magic number 6 stands for boxed label. See
https://github.com/therion/therion/blob/master/mpost/thText.mp#L85 for list
of all label modes.

Please let us know, if this is what you have been looking for or more
complicated changes are needed.
