If you want to hear a voice against the merger, I will be glad to respond.

Can't speak for others, but I'd like to see the specifications of the
components first, before going ahead with a merger, which can obscure things
a bit.

Obviously, every std::string replacement might need to provide a number of
boilerplate member functions that can be expressed in terms of a more
primitive interface, and this functionality can be implemented as a reusable
component. But this is not a merger. It's plain old reuse.
