Lets not argue too much here - that statement may come over badly, but I am the one who has
been fielding [collections] questions and submissions recently IIRC. Collections/algorithms
are not my field of expertise, and so I am fielding [collections] questions largely because
no one else did.

In particular, I have found that accepting a submission generally requires some knowledge
of what you are accepting. This makes me very cautious. I would prefer to see a committer
with real collections/algorithm knowledge take the lead on this. As it is, I will do my best
to understand the issues ;-)

A debate is now continuing, and I will watch and contribute. If a successful resolution occurs
then great - hopefully then we can commit it. But it must be well-defined, clear and maintainable.
