I have added an issue to the JSF2 page that has bothered me since day
one about JSF. As an application developer, I should not care that my
collection bound to a JSF data table is a java.util.Set vs a
java.util.List. I don't care that Set is not an indexed collection or
that the order might not be guaranteed (I'll use a LinkedHashSet or
TreeSet if I need that behavior). I have a collection and I want to
stuff it in a table. End of story. I have said as much in this P2
