Just in case you may be overlooking it, MVC is alive and well in Squeak 5.3.

  world menu -> open... -> mvc project

It may be in need of fixes and improvements, and if so there are several
people on the Squeak list (including me) who will be interested in helping.

It would be cool to see MVC in Cuis too. I think that Juan was recently
talking about re-implementing Squeak projects in Cuis, so that might make
it quite feasible.

The Squeak implementation of MVC may be carrying along some accumulated
baggage, so I'm not sure if it would be a suitable starting point for Cuis.
