It's interesting to me that the world in general knows about Trove,
but not so much this.

The fact that the front page is labelled with a snapshot version might
have something to do with it, but I am kind of mystified. One thing
that I'd like to add that Trove has is a full generic object hash map
that is an open hash to avoid the space bloat of the stock Java

I am willing to make time to work on this. Since I'm not a committer
at commons, I'm thinking that my proposed lab is a reasonable place to
put in some effort and then bring it back into commons. Or maybe I
should just start teeing up patches at commons? I find that
reorganizing changes that might be called for to do generics and such
are really clumsy  in patches, so svn cp-ing to a lab might still make

I'm copy the labs list to test if I'm making a particle of sense.
