The most immediate thing is that [proxy] 2 needs a unary predicate.
It becomes ridiculous for every component we have to define such a
basic interface in a different way.  So [proxy] 2 can never be
released without a [functor] release, etc.

This is indeed sufficient for the immediate future, but again, becomes
*insufficient* soon enough.  I don't personally see what purpose is
served by a 0.x release, but I have to say it's frustrating to work on
a component and only when a release is proposed does everyone who
couldn't have cared less before come out of the woodwork to suddenly
find design issues (issues such as undocumented @SuppressWarnings come
down to personal opinion and I would personally argue they shouldn't
be release blockers, particularly as more often than not the
justification is obvious).  For those of you who have suddenly decided
you care about this component:  if we discuss and resolve the
fundamental design concerns (i.e. no promises beyond reaching
consensus), can you stay engaged long enough for us to get this
wrapped up?
