Subject: Str replacement
When is the Str module going to be extended to provide
re-entrant operations??

I understand (perhaps incorrectly) that Xavier rewrote the
code for this module, and assume the underlying functionality
is re-entrant? 

For compatibility the old broken interface is still available,
which is fine, but a re-entrant interface should be provided.
IMHO. It's disgusting, having a library like this in a functional
programming language. Even Python gets this right.
