	It may have been automatic to run, but you had to invoke knowledge 
about how MVC works to write it. The GC-based removal of inert methods 
and classes in Spoon (which removes far more than just MVC) works 
independently of the implementation details of the removed behavior, and 
is also automatic.

	And it runs in the time it takes to do a full garbage collection (less 
than a second).
