I'd like to say that Java developers have advanced passed that point but 
that debate seems to reoccur too often.  The last time I debated it, it 
became clear that developers who have felt the pain of inheriting Model 1 or 
scripted projects agree with MVC principals; those who have worked on small, 
one person projects don't see anything wrong with Model 1.
