Since the list of files is quite static and would not have changed since Java 6 (except for jdk_stream) I think we should be able to tolerate the not-too-long list of files for the jdk_collections category.

This is an improvement over the first proposal but I'm still not sure 
about groups at this level. I'm not objecting, it's more the concern 
that this will get complicated if personal play lists are added over 
time. I recall Jim Gish was looking to add make targets at one point for 
String-only and Process-only tests for example.

In the context of test selection for profiles, David Holmes has been 
proposing extending the selection to allow exclusion of groups on the 
command line, something like:

jtreg :jdk_util -:jdk_util_concurrent -:jdk_util_stream

which would run the tests in the jdk_util group, minus the tests in the 
other groups. If something like this happens then do you think the need 
for a collections-only subset is reduced?
