Morphic viewers and SyntaxMorph

Last night I watched the Educomm '98 presentation by Alan and was motivated
by the driving car example to finally sit down and figure out how to
manipulate Morphic tiles, scripts and viewers.  Wow!  What fun!

As I was playing, the tiles reminded me of Bob's SyntaxMorph.  It would be
interesting to see the Morphic tile and SyntaxMorph concepts unified.
Assuming that children would start in the environment with Morphic tiles and
scripts, wouldn't it be great if their first exposure to a class browser was
with a SyntaxMorph that gave them the familiar tile interface (which could
be directly manipulated to alter a method)?
