Sorry for the delayed response.  I've been out of town.  When Barry returns
would it be possible to merge the string methods in conditionally (#ifdef
STRING_METHODS) and add a --with-string-methods configure option?  How hard
would it be to modify string.py, stringobject.c and stropmodule.c to carry
that around?
