Yeah, that's probably the best argument for at least leaving MVC in the
image in some form for now... at least until the Morphic docs are fairly
complete.  So, I think shifting MVC into a "Play With Me - 9" window or
something like that might be the best overall option... (I still don't
think MVC is appropriate as the default project).
