CTAN has a new package: asyfig
This package hacks support for including standalone .asy figures into LaTeX documents. (See the Asymptote drawing language.) This allows figures to be rapidly proofed before re-typesetting the document. This is the first CTAN release after some time of private use, and has not been widely tested.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/asyfig . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/asyfig (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
asyfig – Commands for using Asymptote figures
The package provides a means of reading Asymptote figures from separate files, rather than within the document, as is standard in the asymptote package, which is provided as part of the Asymptote bundle. The asymptote way can prove cumbersome in a large document; the present package allows the user to process one picture at a time, in simple test documents, and then to migrate (with no fuss) to their use in the target document.
