I think either it should be safe to use for any string, or only safe to
use for a valid one.
No need for any in-between like safe to use for any string except if
invalid at the end.
That's why my library will provide two variants (safe and unsafe),
albeit I haven't done that yet.
I wonder however if the "Ouch" is really justified. Surely the fact that
iterators are a bit "thick" shouldn't add that much overhead?
I really need to benchmark this.
