No, actually, MVC is not that.  MVC is about how the program achieves
whatever interface it has (be it PARC or otherwise).  It can be
programmed internally in many different ways, and MVC is one of them.
(In fact, most PUI programs do not use the MVC - what they use could
probably be best described as a Model-View architecture.)
