-------------------------------------------

Hi Alan,

I know I can do this:
ArrayList list = new ArrayList();
CollectionUtils.addAll(list, new String[] { "value1", "value2" }); 

The only reason I want this change is to use one-liners like this:
Collection col = CollectionUtils.addAll(new ArrayList(), new String[] { "value1", "value2"
}); 

you know... like MapUtils.putAll() does

but I understand backwards compatibility issue, no drama

> Like MapUtils.putAll() method returns input map, CollectionUtils.addAll() methods should
return the input collection.
> This will allow to init and populate collection at the same line:
> ArrayList inputs = (ArrayList) CollectionUtils.addAll(new ArrayList(), new String[] {
"value1", "value2" });
