        Of course. Its also a bad idea to wrap too much up.
The best way to design components is to build them out
of small, well defined primitives with a few well defined
combination techniques. The prototypical example is formal
logic, in which systems are constructed from axioms
and rules of inference: the same idea, however, is
applicable in software design.
