Hey Jan,

I agree the current look and feel needs an overhaul, but it's not what I'd
try first as it is a big job to do it properly!

There's a morphic chapter in the handbook at docs.selflanguage.org which
is probably a place to start learning about how morphic in Self works.

What would be really interesting and useful (and actually doable in the
short term) would be writing some notes on what you're learning about the
system as you investigate it. If you want you could make them blogposts on
the Self blog, or just post them to the mailing list...

Best wishes, Russell
