> My convoluted build process requires recompilation of Commons project with Java 8. ReverseComparator
contains the project's sole incompatibility. Although Commons Collections doesn't *need* to
compile with JDK 8, it could be made to do so with one rather harmless change. Could attached
patch be merged into 4.1?
