VPC=S/MLT?

OK, So I'm doing a lot of reading lately on Nexus as we are about to get 
into the 7k/5k game and of course a lot of the marketing revolves around 
VPC. Every time I see it referenced, I keep remembering a reasonably 
reliable Nortel implementation called Split MLT (Multi Link Trunk). Is 
there something fancy here that I'm missing in the docs or am I wrong in 
equating the two? Isn't VPC just S/MLT? It's just that Cisco has shown 
up 8 years late and is trying to hype it up to compensate?
