Simple Morphic project

Being someone that is a purest at heart when it comes to separating
business logic, i.e. the model, from its interface, i.e. a view and
controller, here is an alternative to Tim's example. It's a little
more work, but it keeps the LedMorph more of an "interface" object by
making it pluggable. The counter object is a model object, and the
counting application is a cooridnator object in that it creates the
counter and pluggable led morph objects and connects them up.

It's not the best code in the world, but it gets the point across.
