Description

Currently function instances print their toString() with the munged Java name:

user=> (ns proj.util-fns)
nil
proj.util-fns=> (defn a->b [a] (inc a))
#'proj.util-fns/a->b
proj.util-fns=> a->b
#object[proj.util_fns$a__GT_b 0x141ba1f1 "proj.util_fns$a__GT_b@141ba1f1"]

For debugging purposes, it would be useful to have the function toString() describe the Clojure-oriented fn name.

Approach: Store the original name in the function instance and use it in the toString() rather than returning the class name.

proj.util-fns=> a->b
#object[proj.util_fns$a__GT_b 0x47d1a507 "proj.util-fns/a->b(NO_SOURCE_FILE:2)"]

Tradeoffs: Increased function instance size for the function name.
