I tried to group the existing issues this weekend, so everything that is
marked as 4.0 should be resolved imho, the most important ones being:

 * finalize the Buffer -> Queue change
 * change package / groupId / artifactId
 * create (extensive) release-notes
 * fix test errors with IBM JVMs
 * review trie interface

Another important thing would be to review all method signatures with
the new generic types, some things are really not working as intended or
will create headaches (e.g. MultiMap<K, V> inherits from Map<K, Object>
which makes it impossible to use for some/any MapUtils methods unless we
override all methods also with a MultiMap<K, V>).

My idea was to create an alpha or beta release and try to get as much as
possible feedback from people within 1-2 months and then aim to release 4.0.
