I'm working on this.  The javadoc has some re-filling which creates lots of diffs of whitespace only, which makes things go a little slower.

I am trying to like the cleaner, more restricted semantics for the utility methods, but they really do some harm to the use cases.  The really notable change is the loss of defaulting behavior of the first parameter to iteratedLoop, which was List::iterator.  That was intended to corresponding to the for-each syntax, and it is hard (and probably non-performant) to ask the user to rebuild a MH for Iterable::iterator at each use site for iteratedLoop.
