Currently UserString.MutableString does not support negative indices:
>>> import UserString
>>> UserString.MutableString("foo")[-1] = "bar"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/home/Python-test/dist/src/Lib/UserString.py", line 149, in __setitem__
if index < 0 or index >= len(self.data): raise IndexError
Should this be fixed so that negative value are treated as being relative to the end?
