Yes, Matt, i think thats the right way

About 4 weeks ago there was discussion w/ adding a derivative method to an

I apologize for the time delay but I had previously contributed some 
code that made it to the expiremental branch in the project for 
FunctionOperators. see:

anyway at the time I just wanted to re-focus the group on this concept
as it relates to Derivates. There is a DerivativeOperatorFactory which
creates a function D, such that D(f) = f' numerically. The reason I did
this was to build a framework to add do numerical initial-value problems. 
A lot of these methods use as a base Taylor series approximations, and
hence there is a need for higher order derivative evaluations.

long and short, I thought that the DerivativeOperator approach would be 
a nice start to this without having to program a Function and it's 

Any thoughts?
