What is this?  It doesn't parse as an object definition or
a function definition to me.  Is it an object with a single
method?  Have i forgotten something?

By the way, i dislike "pair" as the method name.  It's not a
verb (well, even if it were to be taken as a verb, it doesn't
signify "pairing up" anything).  Can we just go with "make"
like everything else?
