In the context of layout attributes, a Constable is a general interface 
which means "any constant".

That only means that you can pass e.g. an Integer, a String, an enum 
constant, ... they are all... Constable. You don't need to learn what 
that API is for - it's just a handy supertype for all the things that 
can be represented in the constant pool.
