The collections package is intended as an evolution from the
collection types in the package rather than a radically different
design. In other words, it's easier to move to the collection packages
than to edison. Another advantage is that every type is in the same
"hierarchy" of classes (no separate class for associative
collections). It also makes heavy usage of MTPC+fundeps, I suspect in
a way very close to what Robert plans to do for edison. On the other
hand, there are more types in the edison library.

Robert: if that is actually the direction where you want to move for
edison, I'd suggest to merge the two packages.
