Yes, but you can still write plain active-page stuff if you wanted to.

I'm not exactly sure what you have in mind here, but the active-page-
ness of Spyce isn't really optional the way I think of it.  Views
still correspond one-to-one with .spy active pages.  The new part
is it's easy to put the controller in a separate .py file.  (Spyce
has always been able to import vanilly .py code, so separating out
the model isn't new.)
