Hi Alexander,

Thanks for your enthusiasm. Collections have indeed many rooms for improvement. 
Something that I always wanted to try out, is having a morphing abstract data type. You begin with let’s say an ordered collection, and according to what you put in, then it is morphing to a dictionary if necessary. 

The Lua programming language has this.
