I take it you're thinking of
Could you extend the example with something that sets the width of the
text?  With draw_textline, that is available for free and is essential
for correct rendering.

That is the thread I was remembering.  There were some red herrings
which preceded it due to my confusion.

In MetaPost, LaTeX renders the text, and I don't think MP ever 'knows'
or 'controls' the text width.  The text width is a fallout from the
font size and the string.

Can't we tell the LaTeX part to scale it to a certain width?
