Probably.  I don't think we have a timetable for the 2.0 collections 
release at the moment.  In fact, I don't think we've even reached a 
consensus on what would be going into the 2.0 release.

collections.CollectionUtils and util.CollectionsUtils look very different.

On cursory glance BufferCache is pretty much the same as LRUCache, so we 
may just need add the couple of methods that BufferCache has which LRU 
does not and drop BufferCache altogether.

everything in collections would get tagged as 2.0 and released together.

I think this is still to be evaluated.
