Maker: In E idiom, an object which returns new objects. Roughly corresponds to a class object in traditional OO with reified classes.

def makePair(x, y) {
    def pair {
        to x() { return x }
        to y() { return y }
    return pair

makePair is a maker.

In E-on-Java, each Java class has a maker object which has the constructors and static methods of that class.
