There are many variations on the MVC pattern. The following discussion will not labor over the precise academic or historical definitions of each possible twist on MVC.

To labor over = To work on something. Examples: He labored over the building of the boat. Do not labor over the writing of the essay.
Twist = Possible ways a thing can be done. Examples: There were many twists in the story. Building a car with five wheels would be a new twist on an old idea.
