In my opinion, yes [functor] should contain the most basic and common
Functor implementations.  You're only gonna want common Functor
implementations if you're using Functor (common reuse) and if something
changes in the basic Functor interfaces, then these common implmentations
will likely also need to change (common change).

This does not necessarily imply that both the Functor interfaces and the
basic Functor implementations would need to go into the same JAR or cvs
directory. It is possible to separate the interface classes from the
implementations, even to have distinct dependencies for the two.
