Alex, IMO, there was a huge necesity for the new spark component set due to
multiple problems in MX. God methods with lots of mixed code and without
ante separation of concerns that produces lots of lines of code, very
poorly design that makes very difficult or impossible to extend the code,
etc...Many of the problems comes was herency from code that was created in
other time with less tecnique and knowledge. Today spark is much more
usable and hope be complete so we can deprecate a obsolete MX code.
