Andreas, first, thank you for using my language. Its
Sud-Platt-American, but it's friendly and welcome, especially now that
I am in New England ( hon! ).
So all'y'all :) know, I agree with Andreas' comments regarding
Morphic. The flat nature of writing application logic in the Morphs,
rather than having a separate model class, is a natural path
phenomenon. So is the form of reuse and extension seen in Morphic.
