Subject: Request for more String functions

It's great that the String module in 3.07 has a String.iter function.

What would also be really useful would be:

- String.iteri
- String.mapi
- String.fold_left
- String.fold_right

Another difficulty I find is doing search and replace on strings, in
simple cases where the overhead of a regular expression probably isn't
warranted.  For example, escaping all '<' characters in a string with
'&lt;'.  It would be nice to have a Search.char_replace function to do
