Re: [plt-scheme] scheme unit/sig (fwd)

In dskippy's case, it isn't so much a question of sticking to MVC. 
It's a question of moving a conventional GUI program to the Web, and
if you have MVC you can do this quickly, if you don't, you're in 
deep trouble. -- Matthias, his professor :)

P.S. If you do have a Scheme server that manages continuations, it's 
actually okay, because you suspend between interactions and keep 
everything alive.
