Description

Something which would be great in Tiger, is a generic Pair class. Nothing 
spectacular, just a way to group two values of various classes:

Pair<String,String> values = new Pair<String,String>();

I think this would be greatly appreciated by the community, and it wouldn't 
involve much effort in development.

Comments
EVALUATION A generic pair class has certain advantages, but can do more harm than good. If you write your own, more specialized pair classes, you can give the fields better names. ###@###.### 2004-02-05
