Interesting :)
I wanted to ask you if there's some simple way to figure out which
version of mpost comes with luatex, but maybe that's not relevant. We
can delete the mpost version entry and just assume that it matches
whatever version has been shipped with luatex.

Is there some way to check if metapost has been changed at all when
you update luatex? And what do you do when you only release a new
metapost and no new luatex?

OK, so I'll just make a symlink for all architectures then.
