This is something I was wondering about.  I was playing with Dolphin before 
squeak (still will for windows things) and I thought the MVP concept was a 
good one.  I haven't had time to dig through all the papers, etc. to find 
out if Morphic is a step backward or forward.  What I mean by that is;  
Multiple inheritance, I would consider a technological step back, but traits 
are a big step forward.
