To all discussing about how to create
an "ultimate" string, I'd like to remind
you following "ultimate" strings existing
1. Why do YOU think you'll be able to create something "better"?
2. Why do YOU think boost::string would be adopted in
favor of std::string or one of the current widely used
3. What so painful problems are you going to solve that
would make it so much better then widely used and adopted
std::string? Iterators? Mutability? Performance?
(Clue: there is no painful problems with std::string)
1. Accept it that there is quite small chance that something
that is not std::string would be widely accepted
2. Try to solve existing "string" problems by using same
std::string and adding few things to handle it better.
Clue: take a look on what Boost.Locale does.
