And now that I've seen Pavel's corresponding response I think that I  
understand better. Thank you for asking the clearing question.

Concentrating on the remaining issue(s): why is it so important that  
Morphic must be independent of Etoys, are they (have they) subclasses etc  
of each other? Or are there political reasons for having such an  
independence, or license reasons? Or what (perhaps elegance, perhaps  

If there isn't anybody suggesting that she/he will divide Morphic by  
Etoys, starting with 3.9 and targeting for example 3.10 or 4.0, then  
please treat these questions as 100%[tm] rhetoric, thank you.
