Am considering renaming to IModuleBridge.

A module map serves only to encapsulate the contents of every method of the the main .module file of a single module.

Every single function of an OOE style module should delegate to a matching method here with identical parameter signature.

This enables PHP-to-UML extractors to represent the hook functions and "by convention" handler methods of the .module as class methods.

The ability to represent Drupal in graphical Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a major contribution and priority of the OOE tutorial module.
