I think there is a basic agreement on this, but back now to functor. In this
case it means more or less to include complete functor into collections
just for sake of no dependency. So, why had been functor created at all?
For a user of both components this is the worst case. Two identical but not
compatible interfaces for most of the stuff. Therefore, either merge
functor with collections (IIRC it was a spin off anyway) or make
collections depending.
