Title: Metapost output escapes parentheses in labels

Version: 1.7.3b
System: *-*-
Severity: minor
Problem:
When I use the -Tmp option to generate Metapost output, parentheses in labels are escaped: ( becomes (, and ) becomes ).

Also: why not provide an option to generate self-contained Metapost files?
Input:

graph testgraph {
a [label="(1, 2)"];
}
