What is the semantics of the <primitive: 210> special form? Do we prefer using Java implementations of data structures or do we roll our own.

I often see, in the implementation of OrderedCollection, lines like this:
+ new
      <primitive: 229>
So I ask myself, what is the semantics of <primitive: ...>

Also for classes like Dictionary, do we piggyback java.util.Hashmap or do we roll our own.

Kind Regards,
