// In the following code, Get is a type which has previously been called State - a name which
// the author found to be confusing, since instances aren't actually states!
// Instances are in fact functions which obtain (get) a value that depends on some state.
// The following code demonstrates using a Get to set as well as get!
// claim: even this is less confusing than using the name State!
// N.B. Here, 'State' is the type of the er, state.
