Awesome! That's pretty much what I was hoping for, thanks for working on it. :)

> As of COLLECTIONS-242, a new Equator interface has been added to the API. It would be
nice to take advantage of that when comparing collections so it can be done on something other
than {{Object.equals(Object other)}}. I propose a new method signature as below:
> {code:java}
> public static boolean isEqualCollection(Collection a, Collection b, Equator e)
> {code}
> Related to this is my post on StackOverflow: [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15094818/compare-two-java-collections-using-comparator-instead-of-equals]
