| I'd the minimum is to separate HTML from the code and going through
| templates. CSS is of course to be used fro the presentation layer.

Using the term minimum like that, you have to define what for. If I
write a small web application that needs to display some data, then the
Borges way is good enough. Adding an MVC pattern to that seems overhead
and adding to the complexity of thought more than anything else.

I have helped develop a major CMS system and been trough with seperation
~ of code from presentation. Code and presentation can be thought of
apart, but in real world they have many inherent dependencies.

I just advise people to do things simple while that works, and use the
big cannons on big animals. Did the point of cocoon being the thing to
look at at the other end of the complexity scale get across ?
