Subject RE: [collections] XxxUtils inner classes

I wouldn't call that a standard. 

I disagree that restyling is rude, particularly when the original author
might not still be the primary contributor to the class, or even a
contributor at all. Also, it's easy enough to use Jalop, IntelliJ, or
whatever to restyle code back to how you like it.
