Prior JSR166x, the only way to iterate in descending order on
a collection is to use a ListIterator on a List. All others data-structures
don't have this feature.
Now, JSR166x propose to introduce the interface NavigableSet
that provide "navigation" methods.
I think, to be coherent LinkedList/ArrayList could have a method
this Iterator is more lightweight than the ListIterator.
I think LinkedHashSet could implements NavigableSet
(see bugs 4848853 and 6182958) to gain navigation ability.
what do you think about these ?
