of course, now that i've posted this i've already started thinking of changes.
in particular, i'm now thinking that forcing the runnables() and futures() methods
on the interface is too onerous, and not necessary.

i've also been brainstorming.other ways of dealing with the Future/Runnable/Callable
problem, and having a handle to ask the Executor to do things (interrupt, unqueue, wait).

but the proposal as it stands should still be enough for discussion.
