Anything other than Egg and Sledge?  <insert joke about using one to

BTW, I like how anything tangentially related to MVC is a "Maypole
wheel-reinvention".  The Rails camp likes to parrot the same thing.  By
that logic, any programming language with OO is a "Smalltalk
wheel-reinvention", right?

MVC is just a design pattern.  A framework being MVC doesn't by itself
mean much.  Many "MVC frameworks" do not resemble Maypole or Rails in
any way.  (Many do.)
