this is really cool :-)

Well, first of all, we need to include the type parameter names in the
type names, ie. use "ICollection[T]" instead of "ICollection`1".  Btw. I
just realized that the display of generic types is currently broken

After that, maybe we can make things look like this:

	+   K : IEnumerable[V]
	X   V : class
