"The mutability of std::basic_string<> and its interface do not allow
implementers to make it a lightweight value object with cheap copy
operation through string representation sharing and copy-on-write
technique while maintaining thread safety."
This claim borders on blatant FUD. Claims to the extent that std::
string is sorta "less thread-safe then char" don't hold water
because there isn't non-const overload of operator for char.
Or am I just missing something?
