Arbitrary sequence of elements.
A sequence of elements is defined to contain elements in the index range
[0, , like a standard Java List implementation.

Edit instances describing how two Sequence instances differ.
To be compared against another Sequence of the same type, a supporting
SequenceComparator must also be supplied.
