Josiah (and other supporters of string views),

You seem to be utterly convinced of the superior performance of your
proposal without having done any measurements.

You appear to have a rather naive view on what makes code execute fast
or slow (e.g. you don't seem to appreciate the savings due to a string
object header and its data being consecutive in memory).

Unless you have serious benchmark data (for realistic Python code) I
can't continue to participate in this discussion, where you have said
nothing new in many posts.
