Guys, your points taken.

This project, as well as many others are victims of monolithic design.
Morphic is monolithic. And Polymorph, placed on top if it, inevitably
inherits a worst
from its base - a monolithic design :(
Also, Pharo cut out many etoys-only stuff from Morphic,
while Squeak proclaimed to keep etoys in place (until better times ;)

GUI, as well as many other parts of system needs systematical approach
- maintenance,
support and improvement on a regular basis.
Being a member of community for last 4 years i din't observed anything
like that related to Morphic.

Loading Polymorph into Squeak will not change things. We will just add
another unmaintained project on top
of already unmaintaned one, unless, of course, Gary will volunteer to
become a Morphic maintainer in both Pharo and Squeak forks.
Which i doubt, because he didn't wanted to do it, when i proposed it
last time few years ago.

Best regards,
Igor Stasenko AKA sig.
