hm, not sure,

first off: it's rather ordered-collection-savvy (ie should work with 
arrays as well, and not to forget the NodeLists from XML files)

but what other strategy could we want to use in that case then just 
throw away all items and copy the sequence from the repeater (ie what 
the SimpleRepeaterBinding is doing?)
