I expect that this will fit nicely into Squeak's project structure:


So when you open a new project, the world menu would give the choice
of "mvc project", "morphic project" or "SMx morphic project".

I do like the the prefix "SMx" by the way. It can mean whatever you
want it to mean in the future, and I've learned that it is never a
good idea to have the term "simple" in a class name ;-)
