Subject RE: Proposal for the Commons Sandbox

True, but the term "builder" in the org.apache.commons.lang.builder sense of the word means
"a thing that helps me build a method".  After all, "EqualsBuilder" is named such because
it helps me build an equals() method, not because it builds a thing called an "equals".
