of four cover-to-cover. I think design patterns are language
specific. For instance, I think that monads are a design pattern that

people say, "My language is so powerful, it doesn't need design
patterns!" *sigh* For instance, using class methods for providing
multiple constructors is something that Alex Martelli taught me, and I
think it qualifies as a design pattern. (His example was
