Thomas Neidhart resolved COLLECTIONS-483.
-----------------------------------------
    Resolution: Won't Fix

Hi Brahim,

I really appreciate your work, and if we would do a greenfield project, this would be the
right way to go.

Doing such a fundamental change in a matured library like collections is not easy and would
certainly be very controversial, thus I close this for now as Won't fix. If you are still
determined to push collections in this direction for a potential 5.0 release, I would suggest
to discuss the change on the mailinglist to get feedback from the community and if positive
we can re-open the issue.

Thanks,

Thomas

>          Issue Type: Improvement

>            Reporter: Brahim Djoudi

> Many packages have mutual dependency, directly or undirectly.
> These dependencies may be avoided just by moving some classes and interfaces within different
packages.
> This refactoring breaks API compatibility but enhances the useability and the maintainability
(hopefully) of the library. In addition, few issues in dynamic environments (like OSGi) less
occur.
