> The constructor CaseInsensitiveMap(int initialCapacity) throws an IllegalArgumentException
if "the initial capacity is less than one". This is inconsistent with the standard Java HashMap
constructor HashMap(int initialCapacity), which throws an if IllegalArgumentException if "the
initial capacity is negative".
> Thus:
> new HashMap(0) ==> no exception
> new CaseInsensitiveMap(0) ==> IllegalArgumentException.
> This inconsistency is confusing.
> Actions:
> - Change Javadoc (this shouldn't be a problem in practice since surely there is no code
around depending on the fact that the constructor throws an IllegalArgumentException :-))
> - Change code.
