Is there a simple way to list the partitions of a set?  For example, there
are 15 partitions on a set of 4 elements.  {{{1, 2, 3, 4}}, {1, {2, 3, 4}},
{{1, 3, 4}, 2}, {{1, 2, 4}, 3}, {{1, 2, 3},    4}, {{1, 2}, {3, 4}}, {{1,
3}, {2, 4}}, {{1, 4}, {2, 3}}, {1, 2, {3, 4}}, {1, 3, {2, 4}}, {1, 4, {2,
3}}, {2, 3, {1, 4}}, {2,    4, {1, 3}}, {3, 4, {1, 2}}, {1, 2, 3, 4}} .
