         <p>
            A <em>functor</em> is a function that can be manipulated 
            as an object.  
         </p>

  -      <p>
  -         Functors are a very old and very common software design
  -         concept, and appear in many languages in many forms.  For example, 
  -         functors appear in:
  -      </p>
  -      <ul>
  -         <li>LISP as funargs or closures</li>
  -         <li>Smalltalk as blocks and closures</li>
  -         <li>
  -            functional programming languages such as Prolog, ML, and 
  -            Haskell (<code>functor</code> is even a keyword in Haskell)
  -         </li>
  -         <li>C as function pointers</li>
  -         <li>C++'s Standard Template Library as function objects</li>
  -         <li>Ruby as blocks</li>
  -         <li>etc.</li>
  -      </ul>
  --->      
         <p>
            In Java, functors are typically implemented as interfaces defined 
            by a single, generic member function, and that is the approach taken
