Subject Re: [collections] MultiHashIdentityMap ?
Date Thu, 17 Feb 2005 23:29:50 GMT
There has been demand before for MultiHashMap to extend 
AbstractMapDecorator.

I support the concept of MultiMaps produced by decoration, however we cannot 
change the existing MultiHashMap class.

Should you, or anyone else, implement a MultiMap based on 
AbstractMapDecorator, with test cases, attached to a bugzilla call, then I 
would like to add it to [collections].
