A different kind of collection

As I mentioned in my previous post, it has been 13 years since we have added a new class to the Midas Rich Text LSX, though obviously we have added many new methods and properties and feature sets. For our upcoming release, we are adding a new class which may seem at first to be underwhelming.

Existing classes:

GeniiSession (represents the entire session, but rarely used. Added for 1.00, July 1997)
GeniiRTItem (represents a rich text instance and the note which contains it. Added for 1.00, July 1997)
GeniiRTChunk (represents a defined chunk of a GeniiRTItem. Added for 1.00, July 1997)
GeniiRTComparison (utility class for comparing two GeniiRTItems. Added for 1.40, July 1998)

New class:
GeniiCollection (represents a defined collection of notes. To be released with next version)

Big whoop-di-doo, right? There is already a NotesDocumentCollection, and even a NotesNoteCollection, and we can cycle through those just fine.

This is true, but the GeniiCollection allows for some interesting new tricks. In the script below, I show four different ways the GeniiCollection class can be useful, two of which involve acting on the entire collection together, and two which involve cycling through it in different ways.
