I'll be honest, the message eating null pattern gives me the fear. Just
the name sounds apocalyptic to me. :)
In this case, I suppose, it's like the state pattern where each step
returns the current state?
More explicitly this might be:
state := MessageEater new
state := self.
" Yum "
Presumably you could have additional states, although not sure what
these would be in this abstract example.
