Glad you like it!

Actually, it rather depends on what you want "duplicate" to do. Right now
it also duplicates the connections. An alternative method would be to duplicate
all but the connections. But that might annoy someone who wants a real
Perhaps a better approach is to have it in a context where duplication would
not be needed: having a prototype to drag out as needed.

Something else I'm trying is a way to disconnect a ConnectorMorph by dragging
it faster than a certain speed. I don't know whether I like the effect. The
minimum speed is so that if you try to grab a vertex and miss, you won't
it (as often).

That may conflict with gridding. I'll look at it, though.
