Ah, I see. Well, the intent of this proposal isn't to let just anybody create a new forum at any time, but to let the gods (or perhaps other groups in the cabal) to create a new forum easily if and when the need arises — which is expected to be rare. Which is why this proposal is probably little better than dead in the water. :-)
anyone that insists on a strict MVC pattern ...
I agree. I generally ignore MVC because, in my experience,(a) it doesn't scale well, or at least is very difficult to scale well, and (b) as a pattern it's useful for developers who are just starting out and can't be expected to get a handle on more complex architectural patterns.
Of course, PerlMonks was developed without MVC in mind (or at least not much in mind), so it should be little wonder that there is no good separation between the M, V, and C. In my opinion, it doesn't hurt the site. In fact, seeing a bit of the M can help one get an appreciation for why the site works the way it does, and what the constraints are on change.
What is the sound of Windows? Is it not the sound of a wall upon which people have smashed their heads... all the way through?
