Would these make good class comments for the class Predicates? see Objects
plus a few choice others, ()->false is fine, etc.
I know it won't help programming-by-autocomplete "where is X?" Those of us
used to adding "p" to function names see predicates everywhere. But
autocomplete and static accesses mean the lambda-newbie needs a nudge to
see predicates everywhere too.
