I believe an enum could do quite well in this particular situation - 
when we revisit the code in 10, and lead to a more 'declarative' version 
of the same code. For example, each enum constant could have strings for 
storing posix/unix predicates, and a method that returns your lazy 
method reference. That should clean up the code quite a bit.
