It never was.

The concrete data structures used to represent strings in these languages are 
different. So you've just picked a concrete data structure with slow append 
and showed that its append is slower than a concrete data structure with slow 
random access and worse memory usage.

This is just swings and roundabouts.

You might like to compare the performance of setting a single char in a string 
in Python and OCaml...

Can C++ escape a string using OCaml syntax?
