But it also implies string *optimizations* (small string optimization, anyone?)
As an *implementation detail* of some other Unicode container jobbie,
basic_string makes sense.
It might even make sense to expose the raw basic_string (with
warnings), just for interoperability reasons. I'm sure there are lots
of interfaces out there that already deal with utf-8 in basic_strings.
