consolidating data providers

recently i had a List component being updated periodically from an external data source. the entire item set for the List was supplied at each update (inefficient, i know, but that's how it worked). however, replacing the List contents entirely was wiping out the current user selection in the list. very annoying. so i created a function to consolidate the new item set with the list's existing data provider. i figure someone else might need a similar function, so i posted it as a technote.
