Yeah, the DNSServer code uses a Vector as the underlying implementation 
and a custom comparator.  Then all we really need to do is change the 
method contract to maintain that this is a List and not a Collection.

As for SortedSet vs. List, it logically makes more sense to have it as a 
SortedSet since it wouldn't make sense to have multiple MX records to 
the same IP address.  But you never know, I don't think DNS could 
enforce this... I guess we just do extra checks as we add the IP 
addresses and avoid duplication.  I might just make it a List to avoid 
working this out... the benefit of making it a SortedSet seem minimal to me.
