Oh yes. I also found myself writing these:

 inline bool contains( string_c& s, string_c& other )
 inline bool contains_back( string_c& s, string_c& back )
 inline bool contains_front( string_c& s, string_c& front )
 inline string substr_until( string_c& s, string_c& end )
 inline string substr_after( string_c& s, string_c& begin )
 inline string substr_without( string_c& s, string_c& out )
 inline void erase_all( string& s, string_c& what )
 inline void erase_front( string& s, string_c& what )
 inline void erase_back( string& s, string_c& what )

 typedef std::pair<string, string> string_pair;
 inline string_pair split( string_c& s, string_c at )

I not sure they are the best possible names, and maybe they should
beoverloaded for char, but atleast it shows some
convinience I needed.
