Factory is an object-oriented approach to partial function  
application, also known as currying. The Factory module is a more  
powerful implementation of this pattern. Some improvements include:

- safer, as invalid arguments are detected immediately, instead of at  
call time
- intelligent support for classes, instance methods & all other  
- bound arguments can be inspected and modified as attributes
- several convenient methods for (re)binding arguments
- no "Russian dolls" of nested lambdas

Using Factories can:

- simplify writing callbacks
- reduce bugs in concurrent applications
- provide easy lazy evaluation
