In the case of CollectionUtils, I don't see why we shouldn't keep the
existing implementation. In most cases, it would be better to replace
the use of this class with Guava, but, to the extent that we are using
it, we're not going to find a better implementation in 'commons' that
replaces Olivier's thing.
