I think explicit imports are the best solution (and are a good idea

There are 29 classes in the Collections compatibility package.


Some of the replacement classes replace classes that are not in
java.util, and some of the classes in java.util (e.g., StringTokenizer)
are not in this package.

The two most common sticklers, by the way, are Comparable and
UnsupportedOperationException. These are included in JDK1.1 Collections,
but because they're part of java.lang in Java2, they aren't usually
imported explicitly in the source code.
