I also think this is the way to go. Probably the best you can do is split it
up threefold:

TAbstractImagelist      - contains all common code to manage images.
 +- TImageList          - 100% Delphi compatible imagelist
 +- TImageCollection    - New implementation.

Much of the code should be the same for both implementations. Only the
actual storing and retrieving will differ...
