To make things clear, I do not want to sound like I am opposing to what you
are doing. I really think that these algorithms are usefull and very usable.
Only point I want to emphasise is the necessity to have these algorithms
implemented in string oriented fassion (maybe in parallel with generic
ones). String oriented algorithms would give you the following advantages
and additional functionality:

1) They would make implicit use of char_traits methods, which are ignored
now by default.
2) Possible string optimizations, which would be important for string
intensive programs.
3) More convenient signatures for those (majority as you agreed) who whould
use it with strings.

Best regards.
