heh.  the "init" method is the only method at present.  the only other
method that i can ever imagine being added is a destroy/reset method, but
i'm presently still of the opinion that that would be long in a completely
separate interface.

my "virtually identical" complaint stems from the fact the all the
interfaces would be:

public interface MyFavoriteToolInterface
    void init(MyFavoriteInitDataClass initData);

so, extending a common interface doesn't really help the matter.
