Yes, but I though the 'objects' in this case are endofunctors from a
type to itself... the the morphisms operate on these endofunctors, the
morphisms are unit and join.... such that joining 'unit' to the
endofuntor retults in the endofunctor.
But I think that as the endofunctor is from the type to itself, the
value does not
come into it.
A -> A `join` unit => A -> A
