FYI, Java 2's anonymous classes nicely fill the gap made by first class
functions.  In Java, you can create a closure and pass it around just
the way you would with a first class function.  Considering the
language doesn't *have* functions, using classes as closures makes more
sense than introducing functions, although it is a little verbose.
