What is truly interesting is that there are no *wasted* methods from 
Collection in List. List truly isa Collection in that every method from 
Collection is meaningful. This in contrast to the DOM style of using 
interfaces where methods that don't do anything are still around.

IOW, I don't want to see a fly() method on something doesn't have wings.
