It's perfectly OK, and that's why you were corrected. :)
Basically, you'll do the following:
* add an instance variable: contents
on your instance side, add:
contents := OrderedCollection new.
then for each item of the collection protocol, delegate it, as in:
^contents add: anItem.
^contents includes: anItem.
and so on. If you get really tired of adding all of them,
just add them as you need them (when the debugger tells you :).
If you wanna get really tricky, you can add a #doesNotUnderstand: handler to
perform the method on the contents variable, but that can mess up your
debugging, so it's better if you don't.
