Nevermind Morphic, which just seems to keep bloating and bloating.

Anyone up for redoing it?

Wasn't that a project a while ago? To redo morphic? Everyone talks about 
design patterns, and refactoring, but no one ever seems to do it in 


Squeak is good, but I find the cruft really gets in the way of a lot of 
things. I've started using PHP lately, and I really like it for webpage

Plus conceptually, it's very smalltalky in it's object behaviour.
