Response to: Well, you're close...
I didn't want to mislead people into thinking that by using Functors you would be practicing true functional programming. IMO, I don't think strict functional programming is possible in Java. Commons Functors can be used to encourage a more functional approach, but, in the end, you are still programming in an imperative language. In other words, I didn't want people to think that by using Commons Functor you could be as cool as a Haskell programmer. :-)
