I’m never not thinking about the AbstractSingletonProxyFactoryBean, which is a convenient proxy factory bean superclass for proxy factory beans that create only singletons

@misty Wait, whoa whoa whoa, you mean that /isn't just a joke/???

@misty Yea, that's really intuitive. Beware of Haskell though, since Monads otoh are super complicated.

@valrus @misty I have a hunch that it'll violate some law in a way that it will make any attempt to reason about it mathematically useless. Yea, i know, Hask isn't a Category either. But at least the Functor/Applicative/Monad laws in Haskell are useful in building an intuition about how implementations of those classes will behave.
