Looking through the string methods, it appears that only
a few of them, seemingly chosen arbitrarily, have start
and stop arguments.
Seems to me a string-view object supporting all of the
string methods would be a much better idea than this
haphazard mixture, and would fit in nicely with the
Py3k views philosophy.
