Interface SensibleClone<T extends SensibleClone<T>>

    public interface SensibleClone<T extends SensibleClone<T>>
    extends Cloneable
    This 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.
