Have you seen a recent collections regression?  I can't compile
TreeMap right now -- but I could last week.

Thia makes sense to me.  Thanks.  I agree that we should just use the
fields directly.  In some cases, though, this will mean moving methods
into subclasses (eg Rectangle2D doesn't have any fields -- they are
always in subclasses).

The geom.*2D stuff bugs me.  It is a poor excuse for parameterized
types.  Doing it by hand means extra maintenance burden for us.
