Oh, great -- I missed it in the meta separation.
What parameters does it take? (/me looks...) Ok, I see
magic::construct, but no intrinsic::construct. Little help?
Anyway, it's good to have a way to compose new and apply, IMHO. If
the parameterization is right, we are done. The right
parameterization includes the class *or function* and the arguments
array. It should not be a class-only thing.
