Actually, for simple apps MVC just gets in the way. But for something like
Chandler, where the data model and UI interactions are fairly complex, it
makes sense to commit to MVC from the beginning, especially with multiple
views. However, if the data model and API to access it is reasonably far
along, then GUI prototypes can be banged out without using MVC in a matter
of days, hours in some cases, just to get a feel for how certain operations
might work. Direct manipulation is great for that sort of RAD prototyping.
I'm not trying to start a flame war, so no need to fire anything back <wink>
