What's the difficulty in having a predicated (filtered) sub-list class that
is just a plain wrapper around a List (any List, not just a LinkedList) as
opposed to the strange wrapper'n'subclass beast that PartialList is?
PartialList strikes me as hard to follow and wasteful, I'm sure there is a
reason for it but I can't figure it out.

Yep.  It's not a trivial fix (thus it's in the TODO.txt file and not
already done in the code) but it's a pretty straightforward fix.
