Currently functor is somehow in limbo state. It has been promoted to
proper, but there has never been a release. So I wonder what we want to do
with it.

I think Matt has the right of it.

If there's no current need for Functor, and it's never had a  release, does
it need to make a sound?

A lot of the current snapshot is redundant under plain old JDK 8;  much of
the rest is subsumed by various functional and/or reactive libraries (of
which there are quite a few).  AOL's Cyclops [1] bridges a bunch of these
(e.g. [2],[3].[4]). Is there anything that isn't provided for in cyclops or
one of the things it bridges?
