As a user of collection wrappers, proposed patch just hit the alarm 
buzzer my nervous brain is equipped with.

But your position is wise. As long as a MappedCollection, lazy list or 
lazy collection (see these projects on SqueakSource) are all created 
under our control, we can manage...

That's precisely how i find and fix unknown bugs:
Imagine how i could break current implementation.

For this reason, most patches i proposed are minor.
Hope a few are usefull, since adopted in 3.8.1, 3.9 and 3.10.
Any minor contribution counts anyway :)
