 Review comment:
   But once I got going I found the amount of code was minimal. This implementation is faster
as it does not support fail-fast concurrent modification checking for threads and doesn't
even know it's own size (saving unneeded counter incrementation).
   I'd favour not adding a dependency just for this 15 lines of code and using the faster
   However if we do use `Bag` from collections it offers the possibility that the user can
pass one in (via the converter function) and the algorithm detects it.
