Thank you for the pointer.

I believe we have a design for the system, doing refactoring based on that
would result in a much more quality code, compared to refactoring
independent modules without having a proper design.
Regarding MVC, I was talking about using an open-source MVC framework for
the task that is build upon OOPs , may be codeigniter or cakephp.

I'll post my ideas to the respective list as well.
