public interface SensibleClone<T extends SensibleClone<T>> extends CloneableThis interface exists as a workaround for the annoyingness of java.lang.Cloneable. It is used for generic methods which need to accept something they can actually clone (Object.clone is protected and java.lang.Cloneable does not define a public clone method) and want to provide some guarantees of the type of the cloned object.
T sensibleClone()Like Object.clone but sensible; in particular, public and declared to return the right type.
