…on a related topic, I’ve started porting old-school MVC* to Cuis with the intention of replacing Morphic with a generic framework that can be back-ended by BitBLT, OpenGL or HTML5.

Anybody want to help?


* = starting with traditional MVC classes and system windows, and following that with some version of the “Wrapper” framework as still used in VisualWorks.
