for what it worth I came to exactly the same conclusion while ago and introduced
basic_cstring template (in Boost.Test code and in all my day life projects),
which is is tiny abstract that wraps two pointers or pointer and size to model
any buffers in C like interfaces. I must say it's still one of the most useful
little thing I am using in my code.
