John, can you elaborate on such design? Particularity, is there an equivalent
to string-ref in this model? If there is none, how do you decompose a string?
It seems that substring searching or regexp-matching without chars is only
doable after you encode a string and store it in a byte array, which is not
very convenient; any way around that?
Feel free to point me to previous messages, since I skipped parts
of the unicode discussion.
