Hi Stef,

It is all about objectives, priorities and resources. I'm not against 
running M3 beside M2. And I'm not forcing people to chose. If you have 
options (Morphic 2 / lessphic / Tweak / Morphic 3 / whatever) then you 
need to chose. Don't blame me of that.

It is just that I don't want to spend my very little time on that. I 
prefer to think and develop the design. However anyone can help. Let's 
get to your objectives:

If your objective is to "- identify the core of morphic and - rethink 
these parts" then whether you can load M3 beside M2 or not is pretty 
irrelevant. You can just use my image. That's what I expect from people 
wanting to discuss the ideas and help developing it. I mean, if you want 
to rethink the core of Morphic, just start criticizing my documents and 
what I've done so far.

If your objective is "Need to load it beside M2" then you can help. You can:
- work on it
- get a student or someone to work on it
- get Esug to sponsor me. If I could work full time on M3, things would 
go much faster.

Ps. What do you mean by "the stream of Craig"?
