Thinking further...

One thing I don't like it is holding Lang 3.0 up. Or the big leap that
Collections JDK would go into Lang; that may not feel right once we
get there.

So perhaps the solution is to do the Collections split of JDK and
Structures/Algorithms in 4.0, and think about merging later:

Lang 3.0
Collections Core 4.0
Collection Data Structures/Algorithms 4.0

or some set of better names. With Core 4.0 possibly merging into Lang
3.1 etc if it felt right.
