Well, the classes implementing Collection generally also implement
Set/List/Map.  There are some exceptions (like BeanContextSupport
and Queue), but they're not very bag-like.  If you do implement
Collection (for example by extending AbstractCollection), there
is no support for bag-count/bag-increment!/bag-decrement!.
