/**
 * A MonadicCondition allows building boolean expressions of the form
 * (a(0) && a(1) && .. && a(n)), where a(k) is a boolean expression, and
 * collecting the computation failures to a list of messages.
 *
 * <pre>
 * Example:
 *
 *   val isTooYoung = true;
 *   val isTooBad = false;
 *   val isTooStupid = true;
 *
 *   val exp = (!isTooYoung ~ "too young") &&
 *             (!isTooBad ~ "too bad") &&
 *             (!isTooStupid ~ "too stupid")
 *
 *   println(exp match {
 *     case False(msgs) => msgs mkString("Test failed because it is '", "' and '", "'.")
 *     case _ => "success"
 *   })
 * </pre>
