small performance oversight in PP r4.1?

 small performance oversight in PP r4.1?

Looking through the ParcPlace release 4.1 class library I found something that
looked like an omission.  I expected the class SortedCollection to override the
includes: method to implement binary search.  What I found is that it just
inherited the linear search method from class Collection.

Did I just miss it or is this the actual design?  If this is intentional, then why?
Is the overhead too high?  I did notice that indexForInserting: does use a binary
search so I would have expected that overhead wouldn't be a problem.
