Subject RE: [pcollections][PROPOSAL] Primitive collections - new sandbox component from [collections]

Since primitives are not going away, a project help with all things
primitives seems like a good idea. If all it does at first is collections,
that's a great start. I am sure there will be other things to add latter.
