I'm very interested in this class. What would be nice is a COW
wrapper for it as well. As I understand it, std::string may be
implemented as ref-counted with COW, but generally is not.
I have an application where strings will tend to remain the same,
but I'd like to modify them, even if that means creating a new copy,
and sharing the old version.
