I like 'creates' better too (also better than adapts_to, which I came up 
with in my last post).

Including functions into the discussion was very useful (thanks Leo for 
bringing this up). I think however having a look at class decorators in 
a future version of Martian might be a more fruitful direction there (as 
I indicated at the end of my last post).
