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.
