ObserverList<T> class

A list optimized for the observer pattern when there are small numbers of observers.

Consider using an ObserverList instead of a List when the number of contains calls dominates the number of add and remove calls.

This class will include in the iterator each added item in the order it was added, as many times as it was added.

If there will be a large number of observers, consider using HashedObserverList instead. It has slightly different iteration semantics, but serves a similar purpose, while being more efficient for large numbers of observers.
