Hi Jecel,

I apologize for breaking the thread, but I'm having problems with my 
mail provider and I can't answer to your mail.

I agree.

The "plan proposed by Klaus" seems to be what I'm doing, and you can 
download from .
I will not guarantee back compatibility. Anyway, I'm not redoing 
PluggableMorphs. And if I do it sometime, I guess that could be back 
compatible. After all, the old applications (browser, etc) work the same 
with PluggableViews in MVC as with PluggableMorphs. That suggests that 
compatibility with that programming model could be kept. Of course, 
other morphs most likely will not work.
