have you had any usages for CollectionInstances while getting some practical

the more we do use the stuff (template/instancess i mean) the more it seems to
us that collections aren't quite the way they should be (though we don't know
what or how they should be).

i mean any time we start thinking of using them for something we don't in the
end consider "that" case a good case and finally don't use them because of ...
